SCHOOLS in Coventry are being urged to get apply for free first aid classes being offered by provider Mini First Aid which has partnered Savlon for the project.
It is part of Savlon’s First Aid for Life campaign which will see the free sessions provided to 100 schools across the country.
Parents, carers and schools are urged to nominate their local Primary School for the chance to receive a free first aid class for up to 60 children across key stage 1 and 2 (or equivalent) and which also meets the 2020 National Curriculum requirements.
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 young parents and children.
The course content has been developed in partnership with educational psychologists, teachers and first aid industry bodies, and its trainers are all experienced in working with and engaging children as young as three years old.
As part of Savlon’s First Aid for Life campaign, the nationwide scheme will be running throughout this summer term and will provide free classes to a total of 100 schools across the country.
Nominations can be made by clicking here.
Voting got under way on Tuesday and the deadline for nominations is April 30.
