Deptford Park Primary School

The World in Our School

Have you seen our Green Wall? 

Following an air quality audit commissioned by the Mayor of London, we received funding from City Hall and LB Lewisham to install a green wall to try and improve the air quality in our Junior playgrounds.  The wall was installed during the half term holiday in the summer and is now thriving.

Our neighbours, Lendlease, also arranged to site one of their air and noise monitors on the wall so that our children have access to air quality data at all times.

Our school council are currently looking at this data and are exploring ways in which they would like to try and improve our environment even more.  They recently met with representatives from Lewisham Council to air their views and find out what the Council are proposing to do to improve our environment.

Our children were chosen to appear in an advertisement for the  Air Quality Campaign which appeared on the London Underground in the Autumn term of 2019.
