The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) visited us on Wednesday.

The RNLI volunteers, known for their bravery and expertise in maritime rescue operations, believe in the importance of preventative measures. By educating children at a young age, the RNLI fosters a culture of water safety that can potentially save lives in the future.

Among the crucial lessons imparted were the importance of adult supervision in the vicinity of water, the ability to recognise potential hazards like strong waves and currents, and the life-saving technique of “Stop, Think, Float” in case of accidental immersion.

The RNLI’s initiative not only provided Reception with a valuable learning experience, but also instilled in them a sense of responsibility and awareness when encountering water environments. This proactive approach to water safety education empowers young children to make informed decisions and enjoy water-based activities safely.

Our thanks go to the RNLI who provided this session on a voluntary basis.
