Year 6 children from our school have been participating in a first aid program called 'Heartstart'. Heartstart UK is an initiative coordinated by the British Heart Foundation (BHF) to teach children what to do in a life-threatening emergency. It focuses on emergency life support (ELS) skills that can help to keep someone alive until professional help arrives.
The Heartstart UK Schools Programme delivers ELS training for pupils so they learn when and how to act in a life-threatening emergency. The programme allows maximum time for practice and hands-on learning using resuscitation training mannequins.
