We want London Fields Primary School to be the next school to have Hackney Council’s School Streets scheme implemented on Westgate Street and Sheep Lane.
Why is this important?
London Schools are exposed to illegally high levels of pollution. Air pollution particularly impacts children, with serious consequences, including:
Increased likelihood of asthma and allergies
Damage to brain development
Stunted lung growth for life
Heart disease in later life
Increased incidence of anxiety, depression and Attention Deficit Disorder
Increased risk of cancer
As a group of parents, we support efforts to improve air quality and want London Fields Primary School to be the next school to join Hackney Council’s School Streets scheme. https://www.hackney.gov.uk/school-streets
School Streets reduce motor traffic on the roads outside schools at drop-off and pick-up times. School Streets reduce pollution and create a safer environment during these set times whilst maintaining access for residents, businesses, pedestrians and cyclists.
Please sign our petition so we can demonstrate support for London Fields Primary School to be a School Street.
