THESE Doncaster youngsters know what to do in an emergency.

Pupils at Kirton Lane Primary School, in Stainforth, have been awarded a Schools Mark certificate from the St John Ambulance.

The first aid charity’s scheme aims to teach staff at the school to be confident in dealing with emergencies, and tries to show children how to perform the basics techniques of first aid.

The idea is they could be equipped with training that could help save a life, whether that be at the school or away from lessons.

Trevor Polson, schools and community development manager for St John Ambulance, said: “Children are never too young to learn first aid. We want as many children as possible to be aware of the basics of first aid.

“It can mean the difference between a life saved and a life lost.

“We want to make the school environment as safe as possible for all staff and pupils at all times.”
