Since 2020, all state-funded schools in England are required to teach first aid as part of the PSHE elements of the National Curriculum.
Our Emergency Awareness Training programme is an interactive training session for children at primary and secondary schools and delivers a range of lifesaving skills including:
- Making a 999 call
- Managing an unconscious patient
- How to perform CPR
- Correct operation of an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED)
- Assisting a person who is choking
- Bleeding control and wound management
- Management of minor/major head injury
- Treatment of burns
Sessions can be tailored to engage all ages and meet the needs of community groups, in addition to our school’s programme.
Our aim is to educate the community and provide them with the knowledge to confidently manage a medical emergency prior to the arrival of an Ambulance.
There is a £2 per child charge for Emergency Awareness Training for the school’s programme.
