Drowning Prevention Week (17th - 20th June 2023)
Drowning Prevention Week 17-20th June 2023
In assembly on Monday, Ms Reddish taught Key Stage 2 about water safety and how to safely try to rescue someone struggling in the water. Maple Class used this knowledge in the pool on Tuesday by practising reach and float rescues.
If you see someone struggling in the water:
- Never go in after them.
- Shout for help.
- Dial 999.
- If safe to do so, use something long to reach them, lie down and pull them to the side.
- If they are too far away to reach, throw them something that can float and tell them to kick their legs.
Remember: the only safe places to swim are where there are lifeguards!
