2020 National Curriculum Requirements

All our Super Medics courses not only meet, but exceed, the requirements of the new 2020 National Curriculum Requirements for Personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education in England. We have designed course content around the relevant Key Stage year groups to ensure that Children have the knowledge and skills needed to be confident in their actions and to help save a life, should the need ever arise.

Designed to meet the teaching needs of all children

Although our courses are initially designed for children in Key Stage 2 (ages 7 – 11) we provide alternative versions for Key Stage 1 (ages 3 – 6) and for teenagers (ages 11 – 16) utilising relevant language, appropriate for the age groups concerned.
