Visiting professionals enhancing the curriculum

The British Red Cross delivered sessions on Basic First Aid.

How confident did the students feel at the start of the sessions?
The students completed a quiz at the start to measure how confident they felt and again at the end. Almost all the students said that they felt more confident but would like to keep practicing what they had learned.

Learning how to put a casualty in the recovery position.

Developing skills to help a person who is choking.

Students taking the quiz.

Engaging students in CPR.

What did the students & staff say?

I really enjoyed having a different person in to teach us about first aid.


Year 9

It was really good I have done this before in my PSHE lessons. I was really happy that I could remember what to do and learn new things.


Year 10

It was really good fun learning different things to help people.


Year 8

Having an outside professional support and enhance the learning already delivered in school has been fantastic. The training was delivered to students across key stages 3 and 4. For some it was the first time and for others it embedded the skills already taught and developed their skills further. It is really important that the students gain these skills and feel confident to use them if they ever need at some point in the future.

I am really impressed by the developments in learners skills over the course of the week and the support shown by both staff and the wider community involved.

All the hard work and planning that went into the week was well worth it’s while to see all our learners experience new and exciting activities.
