Archbishop Sumner Primary school in Kennington planted 20 new trees in its eco-garden last week in the latest efforts to combat deadly air pollution.
The saplings took root during National Tree Week, and were planted with nearly half a tonne of compost from waste company Veolia, made from garden waste collected from homes across London.
Headteacher Ursula Ovenden said: “Veolia’s donation of a large quantity of free compost enabled our tree planting project to go ahead.
“Parents, children and staff gathered on the weekend and planted numerous trees and shrubs in our eco-garden: all assisted by the high-quality soil improver.
“It was a great learning experience and thank you to Veolia for their support.”
