First Aid Curriculum
At Craven Primary Academy, we recognise the importance of developing well rounded children who develop life skills. We believe that giving children the basic first aid skills that they will need to prepare them for situations they may face in the real world. The academy follows guidance from St Johns Ambulance (http://www.sja.org.uk/sja/schools/a-z-of-teaching-courses/first-aid-for-school-pupils ), and works alongside Children’s Air Ambulance to ensure that first aid is taught appropriately. All adults who deliver first aid lessons have a relevant first aid qualification.
When these lessons are covered in the half term are at the teacher’s discretion; however, they will last for a minimum of half a school day.
