Year 6 completed an introduction to First Aid course for children this week. They completed a mixture of practical and written tasks which should give them the confidence to act if an adult is not around. They were taught how to put someone in the recovery position, how to perform CPR, how to treat a cut or burn, how to stop someone from choking and how to immobilise a fracture.
Obviously, their first action would be to call for an adult and ring 999.
They all received certificates which have been placed in their Records of Achievement.
