New GCSE Grading Structure


Year 12 Health and Social Care students have been given lessons in lifesaving techniques from Rossendale Community First Responders. They took part in two two-hour classes teaching them techniques that first responders use including; CPR using ‘Little Anne’ manikins, recovery position, choking, serious bleeding, dealing with a suspected heart attack and defibrillator familiarisation. The sessions follow on from a first aid training day in 2016 where all pupils were taught CPR as part of the nation’s Restart a Heart Day, which included practising on ‘Mini Anne’ manikins.

The lessons were led by Dawn Taylor, supported by Alan Scowcroft and Emily Totty, Rossendale Community First Responders, as part of the British Heart Foundation’s Heartstart programme.

Dawn said: “The training is really important, especially for young people. They need the confidence to know that they can do it. Another person trained is potentially another life saved.”

Sue Salt, teacher of Health and Social Care, said: “The sessions have been great for the class, a lot of them will go on into careers in the health and social care sector or childcare settings so it will be of invaluable use to them.

“Dawn, Alan and Emily have been fantastic today, they’ve really engaged the class, we’re very grateful to them for coming down for the lessons.”

Year 12 pupil Nicola Elliot said she found the training very beneficial. She said: “The training has come at a good time as I’m currently working towards my gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, which it will help towards.

“It was good to actually get hands on experience with the Little Anne manikins, we enjoyed it but realise from listening to Dawn, Alan and Emily how important the training actually is.”
