Ealing Council conducted an Air Quality audit of Ark Byron in 2019. You can find a copy of the report here. Please click: 20190220 SAQ Report - Ark Byron Primary Academy - ISSUED Inc. App.pdf

The main objective of the audit was to look at the outside air quality at school and in the surrounding area. It provides various recommendations both for the school and local council that aim to reduce emissions or reduce children’s exposure to poor air quality.

On a positive note, very few children come to Ark Byron by car. The location of the school site is also considered reasonable from an air quality perspective. Children are most exposed to poor air quality on their journey to and from school and many of the recommendations in the audit report relate to this.

We are currently working with the school governors, staff and parents to see which of the recommendations we can implement, as well as continuing to talk to the council about the different things they are also doing to improve air quality in Acton. Collectively, the school is working on this important issue and will be share updates on this issue. If you would like to get involved, please contact Dominic Smith (d.smith@arkbyron.org).
