Mini Life-Savers
First aid for primary school children

Mini Life-Savers

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
  • Choking
  • CPR
  • Serious bleeding
  • Asthma and anaphylaxis
  • Bone, muscle and joint injuries
  • Burns and poisoning
  • Seizures
  • 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, £320 for 4 hours to £460 for 7 hours. Please enquire for other time frames.

For more than 20 children in a group an assistant trainer is required, charged at £70 for the first hour then £40 per subsequent hour.

Optional extras – manuals, mini first aid kits, regulated certificates.






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.
