Sustrans Air Quality testing
Last Thursday, we had a return visit from Paul Turner from the charity 'Sustrans' with the results of the air quality testing carried out before Half Term. On his last visit, Paul and Eco Council put up three nitrous dioxide diffusion tubes - one in a classroom, one on the field and one just outside the main entrance.
The results showed were concerning as the amount of nitrous dioxide in the air is above the WHO recommended levels both on the field and outside the main entrance. Children in Year 5 then had a workshop with Paul and wrote letters to Tim Loughton MP explaining the results found and making suggestions for possible solutions to the problem such as reducing speed limits and adding more cycle lanes to encourage more people to use sustainable transport. They are hoping to get a response from him.
