Department for Education recommendationsChild doing abdominal thrusts on a child who is choking.

The Department for Education recommends that pupils at Key Stage 3 should know:​

  • how and when to deliver CPR
  • the concept and use of Automated External Defibrillation (AED)​.

In addition, we suggest your pupils should also know the concepts of common first aid emergencies, and that they are provided a recap of the first aid skills taught in Key Stage 2.
