First Aid for School Pupils
We now offer courses in first aid for school pupils. The Department for Education have recently announced that from 2020 onwards all state-funded schools in England will be required to teach first aid as part of health education. This will include basic first aid for primary school children, for example dealing with common injuries, such as head injuries. Pupils in secondary schools will be taught first aid. For example, how to administer CPR and the purpose of defibrillators.
The decision to make the lessons compulsory came after Lord Kerslake’s inquiry into the Manchester Arena bombing in May 2017 raised concerns that people on the scene “did not appear familiar with first aid principles”.
We will now be offering the following courses in line with these new changes.
