30th May 2019

At the end of May, all the children in Year 5 spent a whole day learning some essential first aid Forever First Aid and two of their qualified trainers.   These important skills are incorporated into the PSHCE curriculum and are funded by the school's PTA every year.
Children learn about resuscitation, the recovery position, fainting, chocking, asthma, burns and severe bleeding.  Lots of practical activities taught the children how to deal calmly, efficiently with these incidents.  Many of the children felt it was very useful to practice their skills on each other to give them the confidence to do it again in a real life situation if it every occurred.
Congratulations to our young first aiders!
