Year 11 St John's Ambulance Training
From September 2020 onwards, all maintained schools, academies and free schools in England will be required to teach first aid as part of the health education curriculum. At Chiswick school we are already ahead of the game.
All of Years 7-11 students have had a basic first aid lesson in their PSHCE lessons and the Triple scientists in Year 11 were the first to receive a visit from Pauline Crawford from St. John’s Ambulance.
St. John's Ambulance has created brand-new Pupil First Aid resources and lessons which are age appropriate, curriculum linked, engaging, vibrant, and meet the new Department for Education statutory guidance.
Our pupils were taught the basic treatments for common injuries, as well as lifesaving skills, such as how to administer CPR and the purpose of a defibrillator and when one might be needed. The pupils were excited to have such an engaging, hands-on lesson. We are looking forward to inviting them back throughout the year.
