    • CPR in Schools

    • The government has revealed plans to add first aid and CPR to the national school curriculum as part of wider Health Education Classes in England from 2020?

      The draft legislation, which was published on 19th July 2018, proposes that teachers talk about the steps that pupils can take to protect and support their own and other’s health and wellbeing, including learning basic first aid. You can view the full draft legislation, by simply clicking here.

      With out of hospital cardiac arrest survival rates being up to three times higher in countries where first aid is taught in schools compared to the UK, this landmark move could save thousands of lives each year!
