Heartstart Summer 1 Year 5
Mrs. Watson and Miss. Jones have implemented a Heartstart Club after school on Thursday (3.10 pm – 4.15 pm) for Year 5 pupils.
Heartstart is a national programme, aimed at teaching emergency first aid skills designed to help casualties until emergency services arrive.
The course included teaching pupils how to: call 999 in an emergency, place a casualty in the recovery position, help a person who is experiencing a suspected heart attack, deal with choking and serious bleeding.
The Heartstart Club has equipped the pupils with the necessary skills to aid a casualty in an emergency situation and increase their confidence.
