First Aid for School Children

Intro
 

This is a free resource for children to access during the time of coronavirus and homeschooling. New sessions will be released twice a week on a Monday and Thursday.

Each section provides background information and a resource of activities to practise knowledge and skills.

The background Information is designed for Key Stage 3 and above, as well as parents who are using the resources to practise first aid skills with Key Stage 1 and 2.

The Resources are split into Key Stages, either to be undertaken on their own or with support from an older family member.

Once all resources have been released, an online quiz will become available for Key Stage 2 and above to complete. On successful completion of the quiz, the child will be issued with an electronic certificate.
