Life-saving training for Year 8


Today, we supported the Restart a Heart campaign with a special event in our academy for year 8 students.

Restart a Heart is an initiative led by the Resuscitation Council, in partnership with The British Heart Foundation, British Red Cross, St John Ambulance, Yorkshire Ambulance Service and Police. It aims to improve the low numbers of people surviving out-of-hospital cardiac arrests by increasing public awareness of cardiac arrests and increasing the number of people trained in life saving CPR. As such, all Year 8 students were taught emergency CPR procedures as part of the day.

We were also lucky enough to also be visited by Deputy Lord Lieutenant, David Dinmore MBE, who wanted to come along to show his support for this important work.

The Accord Multi Academy Trust is an educational charity established in September 2016 that is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. In September 2016 Horbury Academy and Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College came together, moving away from their stand-alone Trust status and were joined in December 2016 by Horbury Primary Academy and Middlestown Primary Academy.

The overarching vision for the Trust is to work in one ‘Accord – celebrating the differences of each academy through strong collaboration in order to inspire all members of our learning community to be the best that they can be.
