The group are also making a film on air pollution in the City of London with Munsur Ali, an ex student from Sir John Cass’s Foundation Primary School and resident on Mansell Street. They aim to launch this in the new year.
There are lots of measures we have in school to help mitigate the effects of poor air quality. We monitor the air with stations around the school site and inside the school building. This helps us to make decisions about physical activity in the outdoor spaces. We’re also fortunate to have the support of the City of London Corporation who have recently made available a grant of £50,000. We plan to use this to install air filtration systems into the basement among other measures.
Ultimately, the only way to really improve things is to improve air quality across our City. I strongly encourage you to get involved.
Our children have been making their voices heard recently by writing to Sadiq Khan about this very issue. You can see some of the writing on the head’s blog.
