All school children should be taught basic life-saving first-aid skills IN SCHOOL as part of the National Curriculum. It has been proved many times before that young children as young as 5 years old can perform basic first-aid to their freinds and adults alike.
In Norway it is Manadtory for ALL school children to be taught first-aid. If they can do this in Norway, then young children should be taught first-aid in the United kingdon. In fact this should happen all over the world.
Young primary school children can learn these vital ilfe-saving skills just as good as adults, if not better than adults.
Let's get this very important subject of the National Curriculum.
