Thornhill Park School

Thornhill Park School is an independent specialist school based in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear for pupils aged 4-19

Our mission is to work together inspiring, supporting, celebrating and equipping autistic and neurodiverse children, young people and adults.

Pupils at Portland site took part in a practical session of first aid, increasing their understanding and awareness with the support of NEAS training team.

First aid is a valuable life skill which helped our pupils become more aware of how to keep themselves and others safe. They attended the first aid session with a member of our Learning and Development team, building on their skills and knowledge.

Pupils enjoyed looking at and exploring the first aid resources, as well as taking part in practical activities. Activities included exploring first aid boxes and equipment, putting on a bandage, the purpose of CPR and the recovery position. They also developed their understanding of who to call in an emergency.
