First aid in schools

We are committed to building a generation of future lifesavers by campaigning for first aid to be taught once a year, every year throughout primary and secondary school.

First aid is set to be taught in all schools in England from September 2020, with the introduction of first aid education being piloted from September 2019.

To support teachers with lesson planning, we have developed free first aid educational resources.
