Learn to Save a Life Workshop -CPR for children

 Learn to Save a Life Workshop - The Resus Rangers - CPR For School Children  

Effective bystander CPR provided immediately after sudden cardiac arrest can double or triple a victim's chance of survival, but only 32% of cardiac arrest victims get CPR from a bystander. The chance of surviving an unattended CPR out of hospital is just 8% and with every minute delay in getting the chain of survival completed, including early defibrillation and early advance life support, this statistic becomes even less.

In an attempt to increase the number of people that survive unattended cardiac arrest, the Education Secretary has announced that from 2020 ALL children will learn CPR as a complusory part of the cirriculum.

Between January and April 2019 Surrey First Aid Training conducted its own research project into how this change would effect schools. The results showed:

  • Only 60% of schools knew about this change to the curriculum
  • 98% of schools would not have time to deliver this themselves
  • 94% of the schools would add this to extra-curricular days like life skills days

We are pleased to be working in association with Resus Rangers, an interactive flexible resource programme for teachers. You can find out more about delivering first aid to the children in your school here www.resusrangers.com
