The school started to work towards an Eco School Award from September 2015. Over the year the pupils were involved in projects to reduce paper waste, food waste and food packaging in school. Mrs Forster led a workshop at the Derbyshire Eco School's Conference about these projects and many schools have now done similar projects.
In September 2016 the school gained the Silver Eco School Award. We are now working towards our green flag award.
In December 2016 pupils made Christmas decorations out of recycled materials which they sold to parents and friends to raise money for the Homeless in Derby City.
