Meet the Lifeguards is back again for 2017 ready to give pupils the opportunity to participate in an informative and interactive session with RNLI Lifeguards in our school. Given our proximity to the sea, these events are crucial to supporting our children’s knowledge and understanding of the dangers of the water.
The 45 minute presentation focuses on equipping pupils with key safety advice that they can put to use when they visit a beach with family and friends.
Pupils will learn more about the RNLI and the role of the RNLI Lifeguard on the beach. Pupils will be educated on what the different beach safety flags and signs mean, the safety of using inflatables, and how to identify hazards. They will also learn about body boarding and surfing safety, rip currents and how to escape them and safety information on tides and waves.
Key Stage 1 will be meeting the lifeguards from 13.15 to 13.45 and Key Stage 2 children meeting them from 14.00 until 14.45.
