Autumn 2019

This term, we would like to raise money for a defibrillator to be kept in school. The cost is approximately £1000.

 

 An AED (Automatic External Defibrillator) is a machine used to give an electric shock when a person is in cardiac arrest, i.e. when the heart stops beating normally. Cardiac arrest can affect people of any age and without warning. If this happens, swift action in the form of early cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and prompt defibrillation can help save a person’s life.

In 2013, emergency medical services attempted to resuscitate approximately 28,000 cases of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in England. Overall survival rates vary across the country, but range between 2% and 12%.2However, survival rates as high as 75% have been reported where CPR and defibrillation are delivered promptly. This is why the statutory guidance on supporting pupils at school with medical conditions advises schools to consider purchasing an AED as part of their first-aid equipment.

 

Please see the school calendar and notice board outside the main reception for a calendar of events and meetings.
