Anti-Idling Event at Plumcroft
On Tuesday 6th March, Plumcroft held its first Idling Action event. Idling Action events are supported by the Mayor of London and are taking place in 18 boroughs around London, with the aim of tackling unnecessary engine idling on the streets of the capital.
The even began with an assembly for the KS2 children, after which staff, children and parent volunteers talked to idling drivers on the surrounding roads and encouraged them to switch off their engines when stationary.
We feel that this type of event is important to the health and wellbeing of our school community, as air pollution has a particularly large impact on children's health. We are also mindful of the impact air pollution may have on our local community.
