Pupils at a Pudsey primary school have benefited from lifesaving first aid workshops.
The workshop taught children at Primrose Hill Primary School key life skills ranging from what happens to their bodies if they were hurt and how they would be treated by a grown up, to understanding basic first aid knowledge required for a first aid emergency.
Kathryn Dickinson, Headteacher at Pudsey Primrose Hill School said: “We are thrilled to have been offered this opportunity. The session was so carefully thought out, insightful and informative and it was great for the children to engage in an experience like this outside of their usual classroom activities.
“It was lovely to see the children’s confidence and skills building throughout the session and it has left them with a great sense of independence and reassurance that they know how to act in a first aid emergency.”
The children were shown how to deal with bumps, burns, breaks, bleeding, how to carry out CPR and, how to deal with choking.

Mini First Aid is the UK’s largest specialist paediatric first aid training company, having appeared on Dragons’ Den and securing investment from Sara Davies MBE, the initiative successfully provides early years with award-winning first aid workshops and training.
Sara Davies MBE, Dragon’s Den entrepreneur and investor in Mini First Aid said: “As first aid is such a vital life lesson, it’s amazing that Mini First Aid and Savlon have partnered up to deliver such a positive and impactful initiative. The classes have provided the children of Pudsey Primrose Hill School with skills that they not only use throughout their childhood, but later in life too.”
Founded in 2014 by mum of six Kate Ball, Mini First Aid was a response to a lack of early years focused and child-friendly first aid courses available to adults and children.
