We are pleased to announce that a further 3 staff members have attended a paediatric first aid course and we now have over 20 staff who are qualified first aiders which is over 70% of our total workforce.

The first aid training which is a full day course covers basic life support, including cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and also essential skills such as dealing with choking, bleeding and bandaging, bites and stings, diabetes, asthma, meningitis and septicaemia, allergic reactions and febrile convulsions.

In addition to this we are offering some parent/carer first aid courses in the New Year so parents are equipped with the knowledge of how to deal with basic life support, choking and common illnesses including meningitis signs and symptoms.
