Green Screen Study: St Cuthbert with St Matthias Primary School
News from the LAQN

A green screen was installed on the boundary wall along the Warwick Road at St Cuthbert with St Matthias Primary School in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. This is one of the busiest and most congested roads in the Borough and has been identified as an area that has high background levels of NO2 and PM10 pollution.

A temporary air quality monitoring station was also installed into the school comprising two NO2 analysers and two PM analysers. The analysers have provided concentration data for NO2 and PM on the road side of the green screen and the playground side of the green screen installation. This has allowed for a comparative study to be undertaken to assess how effective the green screen has been in reducing the concentration of NO2 and PM in the school playground environment.

An air quality education programme was also designed and delivered to year 5 and 6 pupils within the school in conjunction with the installation of the green infrastructure and air quality monitoring station.
