Year 10 1st Aid Training
Over two weeks, Year 10 Roundabout has been dedicated to 1st Aid training for the whole year group. Miss Atkins has utilised our new Pavilion as an attractive teaching space for up to 75 students to train them in a variety of 1st Aid skills from communication to bites and stings to temperature conditions and practical application of slings. Mrs James lead lessons at the same time with alternate groups primarily on safe airways( recovery position) and, using the 35 mini-annies provided free by the British Heart Foundation, to teach CPR. 1st Aid for severe bleeding, burns and shock were also covered. This training is necessary for those undertaking the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme but it is also part of our school ethos that this is an important life skill. In Scandinavian countries it is routine and the survival rate of heart attack casualties is 80% higher than the European average.
