Welcome to our collection of case studies! The stories listed below showcase some of the schools across the UK taking action against air pollution. We look forward to sharing more case studies with you as we hear from schools that have completed the framework and implemented their Clean Air Action Plans.
Are you one of these schools? We'd love to hear from you about any of the actions you've implemented - your story could feature here! Get in touch with us at [email protected].
Russell Scott Primary School, Greater Manchester
Russell Scott Primary School in Denton, Tameside, is a town centre school surrounded by busy roads, a motorway intersection, retail park and very little designated parking. The school proposed a project to cut congestion around the school gates to make it safer for pupils and reduce air pollution. It was supported by the Police and the Council.
Backed by the local Police, Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) and Traffic Enforcement, a group of junior PSCOs were chosen to take the lead in encouraging parents to be more considerate about parking. The Junior PCSOs spoke about road safety and air pollution, as well as encouraging them to make different choices like walking to school.
They took the following action:
On that first morning, their Community Police Officer, PCSO and traffic enforcement accompanied the children out onto the streets outside school.
The Anti-idling campaign teaching resource is designed to teach your students about idling and why it is dangerous. It encourages students to raise awareness about this issue and how they can participate in activities to do this, such as a monitoring activity outside of school and an anti-idling campaign.
Take a look at the Clean Air Day resources, which includes a ‘How to run a no-idling event’ guide: www.cleanairday.org.uk/free-resources/community
