Great Wilbraham Primary School pupils were visited by St John Ambulance last month and taught about giving first aid. Children of ages eight to 11 in years four, five and six from the Cambridge school on Church Street received certificates for passing a short course, and headteacher Kate Coates believes the skills they learnt will serve them well in their futures.

“We had won a St John’s Ambulance Schools mark to show our commitment to the safeguarding, wellbeing and first aid of our children and staff,” she said.

“We are trying to give children the skills to cope in real life situations and contexts, so that when children leave school they can offer themselves so as well-rounded individuals.”
