First Aid Resource for Child Safety Week

Friday 21st May 2010

The British Red Cross is stressing the importance of first aid education for all young people, in the wake of the Government deciding to withdraw the clauses to make PSHE statutory from the Children, Schools and Families Bill.
Red Cross first aid education manager, Emily Oliver says “We are disappointed that other, more controversial elements of the proposed PSHE curriculum have jeopardised the inclusion of first aid. First aid is a life skill that everybody should learn and school is an ideal opportunity for all young people to access first aid education and develop skills to be safer, more confident, humanitarian citizens.”

The Life Live it first aid education kit provides all the materials necessary to equip pupils with vital life-saving skills, with ready-made lessons, schemes of work and varied activities to make learning fun and memorable. The education kit has been specially designed so educators can teach life-saving skills to young people – even with no previous first aid experience. It is ideal for Key Stage 3 and 4 PSHE / PSE, and can easily be adapted for other age groups. The kit may also be usefully applied to other subjects – including citizenship, science, physical education and home economics.
