Junior School do Junior Lifeguards

The Junior School PE department are starting a new initiative this week by teaching pupils to train as Junior Lifeguards. This teaches the pupils many different skills both in and out of the water and incorporates different lifesaving, aquatic and first aid activities. These activities include entering the pool in an appropriate and safe manner, different land and pool based rescues, general water and life skills and some vital first aid training.  Some of the pool based activities will be carried out in full clothing making the situation harder but more realistic.

All sessions will be carried out in the school’s outdoor pool and taught by Mrs Relf, Head of Junior School PE.

Mrs Relf said “All pupils who took part in today’s training session did brilliantly and learnt extremely valuable life skills as well as having fun.”
