The GLA has previously calculated average pollution levels within a radius of 150m around each primary school based on annual average NO2 concentrations for 2010 contained within the London Atmospheric Emissions Inventory.

In 2010, there were 1777 primary schools in London of which 433 (24%) were in locations where average concentrations exceed the NO2 EU limit value.
