In a school environment children may have mishaps or get sick. Some may be involved in serious incidents or suffer from serious illness. Their conditions may not be immediately life-threating, yet they still need medical care.  Thankfully, these occasions are very rare however Aspire Private British School prefers to adopt a preventative policy and as responsible professionals be prepared for these rare situations.

Aspire British School provides the most up-to-date training to its personnel in order to be able to provide an Emergency First Response Care in case of an emergency.
