Training and first aid equipment for your school

First aid, fire safety and health and safety training in schools.

Everything that we can do for your school fits into five essential categories:

1. Staff training to meet your legal requirements

As with all workplaces in the UK, your school is legally obliged to make sure that staff members are protected by putting the right health and safety measures in place. This means identifying all fire safety, first aid, and health and safety needs and ensuring that appropriate training is provided. It’s essential that the training meets the standards set by the Health and Safety Executive and that qualifications are maintained and certification is valid.

Training courses to meet your legal requirements:
First aid at work
First aid at work requalification
Emergency first aid at work
Paediatric first aid
Emergency paediatric first aid

Call our customer service team on 0844 770 4800* to hear about our specific school staff training offers.

2. Staff training to satisfy your duty of care

Your school has a duty of care to your students so that they are safe – and they feel safe – at all times. It’s important that you assess the needs of your students and that enough staff members are appropriately trained to deal with minor first aid situations and emergencies. You must consider all needs, including those in the school as well as activities outside the school.

4. First aid training for students – building a generation of lifesavers

Under the Education Act (2002) your school is required, as part of a broad and balanced curriculum, to promote the spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development of your students and of society. By enabling your students to learn first aid in your school in line with the National Curriculum via our free resources and training programmes, you will go a considerable way towards promoting fundamental British values. Additionally you'll empower your students to learn skills that could one day save someone’s life.

5. Equipping your schools with the right supplies

In order to satisfy your legal responsibility for the health and safety of your staff and your duty of care to your students, your school must be equipped with appropriate fire safety, first aid and health and safety supplies to cover all risks from minor incidents to major emergencies.
