First Aid


The aims of first aid

There are three main aims of first aid:

Preserve life: Your first aim is to preserve life by carrying out emergency first aid procedures (for example, opening a casualty’s airway or performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation).

Prevent deterioration: Secondly, you should attempt to prevent the casualty’s condition from deteriorating further. This could include asking them to stay still to prevent movement of possible fractures.

Promote recovery: Finally, you can promote recovery by arranging prompt emergency medical help. In addition, simple first aid can significantly affect the long-term recovery of an injury. For example, quickly cooling a burn will reduce the risk of long term scarring.

It is our belief everyone should undertake First Aid training & keep this update by refreshing their knowledge & skills at least every 3 years.

The school runs a number of First Aid training courses throughout the year, some during lunchtimes & some as intensive courses.
