Creating a First Aid Spiral Curriculum

Need some help building your children's First Aid knowledge through primary school? Let us help!



First Aid knowledge is essential for all children - you never know when you may need help and the only person around is your child. Teaching First Aid became a national curriculum requirement for PSHE in February 2020, but not a lot of support has been given to teachers in order to build up an effective spiral curriculum.


At Resus Rangers we are dedicated to making teaching First Aid as easy and stress-free as possible. With every subscription to our School Resources Programme, you will get a free guide on how to build an effective spiral curriculum, building on your pupils' knowledge of First Aid skills as they progress from Early Years Foundation Stage all the way through to Key Stage 2.


It covers all national curriculum requirements, such as dealing with minor injuries, head injuries, and an introduction to CPR. The full list of topics we cover with our First Aid resources is listed below. Topics required by the national curriculum are in bold.
