A SCHOOL in Welwyn has picked up a top health and safety award – becoming just the ninth in the country to do so.

The St John Ambulance Schools Mark Award was given to Oaklands Primary School in Welwyn.

The gong was presented after the school demonstrated a commitment to the health and safety of its pupils, workforce and community.

It was presented to headteacher Julia Hume by Mick Mills, schools and communities trainer for St John Ambulance in the East of England.

The headteacher said: “I am very proud of all of the children and staff at the school.

“We are a very caring and nurturing school and this is an award that we are pleased to hold along with our many other achievements.”
