First Aid


Resus Rangers offers a range of awarding winning Workshops in your school for children in the Early Years up to Key Stage 2. The Workshops teach life-saving First Aid in a child-centred approach and meets the statutory requirement to teach First Aid on the National Curriculum and Curriculum of Excellence.

The Resus Rangers Workshops are up to 2 hours long and are adapted to each age group to ensure the content is delivered specifically for the children in that class. We can deliver 2-hour workshops to a specific key stage or we can provide Whole School Enrichment Days in which we deliver a combination of workshops and assemblies to every year group.


The Workshop starts with an introduction to the Resus Rangers are four little characters who are central to the Workshops . The characters are leaving for school and interact with your pupils to ask questions such as "What is First Aid?". Then they take them on a journey to call 999, help a person who is unconscious, take action when someone stops breathing and to look after their friends in the playground.

The exclusive interactive animations make our Workshops distinctly unique, interactive and fun for the children.  

Our Workshops and Teacher Led Resources have been endorsed by leading First Aid Training Providers and follow the latest UK Resuscitation Guidelines. It offers a refreshing and unique approach to teaching First Aid exclusively for children in the Early Years and Primary age group.

Below is a breakdown of how we deliver our Resus Rangers Workshops. 

Enrichment Days

Every class from Early Years to Key Stage 2 will receive an assembly or a workshop tailored to their key stage. The four characters, the Resus Rangers, will guide each child on their First Aid journey tackling problems along the way.

Our Assemblies are ideal for younger year groups to teach them the very essential skill of calling for help and communicating the First Aid message to a grown-up. The assemblies are 20 minutes long each and include games and activities to teach younger students a key First Aid skill.

As for the older children (e.g. those in Key Stage 2), we can deliver Workshops lasting 2 hours for up to 60 children at a time to teach them practical skills such as the recovery position, CPR, and bandaging using teddies the children can bring in from home.

We can work around your timetable and deliver assemblies and workshops to any year group you feel would benefit.
