As part of their PSHE syllabus, Year 8 have been studying First Aid. It was a delight to have Mrs Seddon, our school nurse, lead the session in which pupils discussed the First Aid required for fractures, breaks, burns, scalds and cuts.
Looking out for signs of shock and ways in which to help was next on the agenda, followed by some practical work on how to care for someone who is unconscious. The pupils had to look out for danger, assess the situation and then put the person in the recovery position. We hope that these valuable skills may help the Year 8’s know what to do in an emergency - hopefully!
