First Aid for Schools

Did you know that 270 children die at school every year from cardiac arrest?

That’s 7 children every school week!

When you work with children, first aid is an everyday task. There is always a bumped head to treat, a grazed knee to wash or a splinter to remove, but would you or your staff know what to do if the problem wasn’t so routine?

What if 4 year old Amelia has a seizure in the classroom, or sports-mad Oliver collapses during a football match? 

Or… your caretaker falls and dislocates his knee?

Schools have a responsibility to everyone who enters their grounds, not only the children but also for staff, any visitors and even parents waiting at the school gates. Can you keep them safe in an emergency?

We all know that first aid training is important, but ensuring your workplace is legally compliant can seem like a minefield of complicated legislation that you simply don’t have time to sift through.

That’s why, here at First on Scene, we have a specifically designed training course for teachers, nursery staff, childminders and anyone else working with young people and infants.

Our Paediatric First Aid and First Aid at Work course covers all the bases to help you and your colleagues confidently apply first aid knowledge at your workplace in just 3 days!

This combined course covers both adults and child first aid and meets EYFS and OFSTED requirements.

Why First on Scene?

First on Scene is run by experienced Ambulance Service Paramedics and all of our trainers are medical professionals.

This includes NHS Paramedics, Accident and Emergency Nurses and ex-Army medics, so you can be confident that the training you receive is of the highest quality.

Our trainers share their knowledge and experience from the field to make our courses relevant and memorable.

First On Scene Trainer Sue Bower


Meet the trainer:

I’m Sue, a trainer for First on Scene. Before that I worked as a front line Paramedic for almost 30 years.

My years working with the Ambulance Service mean that when it comes to children hurting themselves (or adults for that matter), I’ve seen it all. So I can give you the skills and confidence to manage any emergency situation.
