IF I HURT MYSELF or am sick, Who would look after me?
First aiders must complete a training course approved by the Health and Safety Executive Northern Ireland (HSENI).
At school, the main duties of a first aider are to:
- give immediate help to casualties with common injuries or illnesses and those arising from specific hazards at school;
- when necessary, ensure that an ambulance or other professional medical help is called.
We are fortunate to have 4 trained first aiders in Knockmore Primary School
