Open Data for Safer Schools (ODSS)

Clear and accurate communication is essential to ensure parents are kept informed and children / staff are safe in school.

Sharing information on COVID-19 cases identified in schools will be key to living with the virus whilst minimising transmission and disruption.


F4VL - Fighting For Vulnerable Lives

The ODSS project aims to be a central hub collecting all available data related to schools in England.

Schools data is cross referenced with demographic catchment area data to create reports that can help to identify risk, model transmission and potentially alert schools before outbreaks occur.

As pupils begin the new school year in England - ONS data suggests that 1 in 70 people across the country had COVID-19.

70p(.co.uk) marks the starting point for the population of England as a whole, but as we head towards winter, school settings face even more challenges. As at 03/09/2021, 1 in 48 primary and 1 in 36 secondary school age children had COVID-19 as pupils entered school buildings for the Autumn term.

Support from local authorities and schools in England would enable an accurate honest view of Coronavirus in schools.

Reports based on analysis of the data can help reduce transmission risk in schools.
