British Red Cross – First Aid

“It is good to do this in school, you learn a lot by someone coming in”

Students from Year 9 Health and Social care were taught the necessary skills to save someone who may have lost consciousness and not responsive. They worked with the British Red Cross who are keen to teach all young people the skills to save someone in this situation. The students grew in confidence and worked well to save the “patient”. They were all given the opportunity to practiced their skills to ring the emergency services and ask for the right service, to explain the condition of the casualty and identify their location if they were not in a familiar place. Students learned the skills to deal with burns and fractures and were able to share their skills with each other. All skills that are priceless and could mean these students could potential save someone from serious harm, even death.

Thank you to The British Red Cross for coming to Arena Academy.
