School Safety Award

Presented to the school which has provided an effective, timely  response to the challenges posed the Covid-19 pandemic in order to minimise the risk to staff and pupils.

2021 Winner
Ulverston Victoria High School, Cumbria

Ulverston Victoria High School well organised and highly successful lateral flow testing programme has helped to break the chain of transmission of COVID-19. More than 4,500 lateral flow tests were carried out across nine days in the school sports hall - equal to three tests per pupil – which meant a huge scaling up of the school’s testing programme. One volunteer said: “The running of each day as increasing numbers of students returned was remarkable. The behaviour and demeanour of all students was extremely impressive throughout the process
