First Aid (as part of our curriculum)


Children at Round Hill, from the early part of their education, will be taught basic first aid and how to support their health and wellbeing. As children grow older the curriculum will expand to teach life saving techniques.

These lessons will form art of the RSE lessons which take place in the summer term.

Children have the opportunity to become First Aid Champions using activities from the following modules:

  • First aid skills – learn and practise eight first aid skills relevant to children
  • Kindness and coping – learn and practise how to help others and keep calm
  • Safety – learn and practise how to stay safe while helping others
  • Explore ideas for children to share their learning with others.

First aid champions contributes to elements of the National Curriculum. By taking part in First aid champions, children can develop their learning in the following subject areas; below are suggested curriculum subject and programme of study links.


Physical health and mental wellbeing


Basic first aid

  • how to make a clear and efficient call to emergency services if necessary.
  • concepts of basic firstaid, for example dealing with common injuries, including head injuries.

Mental wellbeing

  • that there is a normal range of emotions (e.g. happiness, sadness, anger, fear, surprise, nervousness) and scale of emotions that all humans experience in relation to different experiences and situations.
  • how to recognise and talk about their emotions, including having a varied vocabulary of words to use when talking about their own and others’ feelings.
  • how to judge whether what they are feeling and how they are behaving is appropriate and proportionate.
  • Pupils should become more familiar with and confident in using language in a greater variety of situations, for a variety of audiences and purposes, including through drama, formal presentations and debate.
  • Developing their knowledge and skills in reading nonfiction about a wide range of subjects.
