A New playground

In 2018, we proposed to relocate Canon Barnett Primary School’s playground to shield pupils from toxic air pollution on Commercial Street. This was done in line with the Mayor of London’s School Air Quality Audit Programme (2018) which recommended schools to relocate playgrounds away from busy main roads.

  • Our plans will relocate the existing playground to where the neglected car park currently is on the site. This allows the delivery of:
  • A new and modern playground for pupils.
  • Multi-use sports area for pupils to exercise.
  • Reduced exposure to toxic air pollution.
  • Reduced noise pollution to school from main roads.
  • Safer environment for parents and pupils with new and improved lighting, improved CCTV coverage, and increased natural surveillance.
