First aid for primary school children
We firmly believe that all children should learn First Aid as a skill for life, starting as soon as they can recognise the number 999. They are often the first person to react when their friend falls off a bike or chokes on a sweet, so knowing basic First Aid is invaluable.
These courses are bespoke depending on the age of the children and the length of time that is available, ranging from 4-year olds spending 1 hour learning how to call 999, through to primary school leavers completing a full certified course.
They are engaging and fun due to the emphasis on practical learning and can be run for schools, clubs, private groups or families.
Topics can include:
- Incident management and calling for help
- Unconscious casualties and the safe airway position
- Serious bleeding
- Asthma and anaphylaxis
- Bone, muscle and joint injuries
- Burns and poisoning
- Head and spinal injuries
Depending on the chosen topics, between 1 and 5 hours plus breaks. Approximate times vary with group size and level of maturity of the children participating.
Louise is a qualified, enthusiastic trainer who is an ex-secondary school teacher, a primary school mum and DBS checked (on the annual update service). An extra adult who knows the children must always be on hand for pastoral care.
Ranges from £100 for 1 hour, £300 for 4 hours to £425 for 7 hours. Please enquire for other time frames.
For more than 20 children in a group an assistant trainer is required, charged at £60 for the first hour then £35 per subsequent hour.
Can be held at any venue large enough not only to seat everyone but which also has enough floor space for the practicals, or we can source a venue for you at your cost, if required.
