Heart Start

Our Y4 pupils are learning how to respond in an emergency. The British Heart Foundation Heart Start course for young people is an excellent way to start learning these skills. They already know how to check for dangers, check for a response, open the airway, check for breathing, call for help and put a breathing casualty in the recovery position. We even used our new skills and put them into practise at RNAS Culdrose where we have our school swimming lessons and the lifeguard was very impressed. We will be moving onto dealing with a non-breathing casualty, choking, heart attacks and bleeding next. Tomorrow’s first aiders are in the making- what great skills to learn so young.
