On Friday 12th June we will be joining St John Ambulance Big First Aid Lesson. In the space of just one hour our children will learn first aid skills that could stay with them for a lifetime. The online first aid session will be streamed live and direct into classrooms across the country. The interactive programme combines first aid training, 999 scenarios with amazing real life stories, and opportunities for our students to join the conversation.
We share St John Ambulance belief that everyone should get the chance to learn first aid. It is so easy to learn and can have an incredible impact. First aid is not compulsory on the National Curriculum, in fact, across the country in a 2014 survey nearly 60% of children had no first aid training whatsoever.
First aid gives young people something amazing – the confidence to do the right thing when it really counts. The BIG First Aid Lesson is the culmination of first aid learning throughout the school. Y4, 5 & 6 have completed the more advanced course having completed a basic course last year. Again, please take time to talk to the children about what they have learnt, as we all know shared learning between home and school has the greatest impact on the children.
