Pupils at Moreton Hall Prep School have learned the most important lesson of all - how to save lives.

Neil Flowers, an East Anglian Air Ambulance critical care paramedic, visited the school in Mount Road, Bury St Edmunds, last week to talk to the children about basic life supporting skills and personal safety.

He told them about the sequence of checks - how to check for danger and how to check for a response and for breathing - before demonstrating how to put someone in the recovery position, as well as how and when to start chest compressions if they are not breathing.

Sheilagh Molyneux, the school’s matron and qualified nurse, said: “Providing school children with this knowledge and raising awareness of the importance of performing basic life support and personal safety is not only key for the pupils and their lifelong learning skills but it is vital for the community as a whole.”
