CPR to be introduced to all Schools in England from 2020

The new proposals will see first aid and CPR being added to the curriculum as part of the Department for Education's (DfE) plan to strengthen teaching of health, sex and relationships education in England from 2020.

Paramedic and leading author of the UK's No.1 range of first aid training books, Nigel Barraclough, had the following to say:

"It is great to see that this landmark decision is now becoming a reality and thousands of secondary school pupils across the country will be trained in valuable life-saving CPR and first aid. Norway has been teaching CPR in schools for many years and the increase in bystander CPR is the main reason that they have survival rates as high as 25% compared to the UK's 10%. By providing school children with the opportunity to learn these valuable skills, this is a significant step towards improving cardiac survival rates in the UK."

Premier Training Services would be happy to deliver this training within the school curriculum timetable and would be happy to provide further details in this respect.
