Doncaster school aiming to reduce air pollution
A Doncaster school is doing its bit to try and tackle air pollution.
Sandringham Primary has been encouraging pupils to take part in the WOW Living Streets walk to school month to help reduce the amount of pollution around the school.
Teacher Clare Linklater said: “Despite the weather, we have had an average of 86 per cent of pupils walking to school and therefore, earning an extra badge as part of the campaign for doing so.”
To round the walk to school month off, all staff took part in a car park free day on Tuesday by walking to school or taking part in the park and stride option.
Clare added: “We are hoping this sets a great example to the children and helps them stick to trying to improve the clean air around or school and more importantly keep our children safe. In the future, we plan to work closely with the council to help keep many of the parents cars away from school.”
