The Department does not currently monitor air quality in schools or other educational institutions.

The Department has recently published guidance (BB101) on achieving good indoor air quality in new and refurbished schools. Outdoor air quality is the responsibility of local authorities who should prepare air quality action plans to ensure that the level of pollutants is reduced.
