Clean Air Schools Grant Programme

Bradford Clean Air Schools Projects are starting to take shape

It is great to get updates from the schools involved in our Clean Air Schools Projects (CASP) and learn how each school is using their allocated grants to make improvements to the air quality at school and encourage children to utilise active travel options.

  • Russel Hall Primary has transformed unused space at the back of the school away from the busy main road into clean and peaceful outdoor learning space.
  • East Morton Primary school has continued their eco-school journey by creating clean air spaces which are safe for children to play, they are also learning about science and will be monitoring air quality around the school.
  • St Johns CofE has installed a new bike shelter for the safe storage of up to 30 bikes and scooters to ensure families have somewhere safe and secure to leave equipment.

These are great achievements in such a short amount of time and will have a positive impact on the school environment. We are looking forward to seeing more projects come to fruition and see how the CASP grants will improve the school environment by reducing air pollution.

 


The Clean Air Schools Programme application process is now closed.
We are not taking any further applications at this stage., if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the team at cleanairschools@bradford.gov.uk

The Bradford Clean Air Schools Programme (CASP) is a Bradford Council initiative funded by the Bradford Clean Air Zone (CAZ). Reductions in pollution outside schools are already being delivered by the CAZ, especially at those located next to busy main roads. The CASP seeks to further improve air quality at schools by providing targeted funding direct to schools to help them implement bespoke emission and exposure reduction measures ensuring schools become cleaner, healthier places for Bradford’s children.

 


School Streets help reduce traffic congestion and improve air quality

Some schools in Bradford have recently introduced School Streets schemes which restrict vehicle access on near to the school during the busy times when children are dropped off and picked up.
