“I know exactly what to do now if someone in the street has a heart attack!”
So said Christ Church Primary Y6 pupil Charley, who was among the KS2 children learning First Aid skills at the end of last term. All KS2 children at the Cressage school underwent eight hours of First Aid training as part of the school’s approach to equipping the children with skills to deal with everyday life.
Head Mrs Tracey Cansdale said, “Our recent Ofsted inspection commented on how much the pupils enjoyed their learning and how well they behaved in school. We believe this is because they are enjoying a rounded education with many experiences. We’re really proud that our ‘good’ Ofsted report mentions Art and PE as well as great outcomes in reading, writing and mathematics. And if you ever need an emergency responder, we feel confident our pupils will know what to do!”
