Abbey School

Abbey School became a Heart Safe environment after being presented with a Gold Defibrillator Package, courtesy of Hand on Heart Charity after winning their monthly prize drawer!

The school, based in South Yorkshire has around 104 pupils, all of which have a learning difficulty which can be moderate to severe. After discussing it in a staff meeting, they thought that having a defibrillator in school would be extremely beneficial for a number of reasons, the main reason being that having 64% of pupils with medical problems and the access to the school being extremely difficult which could be cause for concern when knowing that for every minute that someone is in cardiac arrest their chance of survival drops by 10% and could cost a life if the emergency services were delayed in any way.
