As part of our keeping safe strand in PSHCE, Year 7 pupils learnt about what causes choking, signs of choking and then importantly, what action to take. Led by our school nurse and with the aid of specially designed training vests, they were able to practise scenarios including the abdominal thrusts to dislodge an item from an artificial windpipe. Whilst we hope no one has cause to put their skills to use, they felt confident they would know what to do in this type of emergency.
