First Aid Course
In normal circumstances, P7s would be completing the “Heart Start” course. In the absence of this, we have sourced the STAR COURSE. This course aims to teach important lifesaving skills and encourage children to join in. During the course we will cover How to Deal with an Emergency, CPR and the use of an AED, Bleeding, Fractures Recovery Position, Choking and Burns. When you complete all five stars you achieve a Superstar Mini First Aider Certificate. Each week - we will upload a video and you will complete one section of your workbook. This will work towards achieving a certificate.
