Pupils to be given advice on how to respond to terrorist attacks

Security experts from Counter Terrorism Policing (CTB) have commissioned a new animated film designed to teach young people how to react if caught up in a gun or knife terror attack.

It is aimed at 11 to 16-year-olds and will include details on what to do if they see suspicious behaviour or a suspicious item.

There will be different versions of the new film, one for Key Stage 3 students and one for Key Stage 4.

It has been designed by the PSHE Association and is available to both schools and youth organisations.

Once young people understand the RUN HIDE TELL advice they can progress to TREAT, which has been created in conjunction with St John Ambulance.

This age-appropriate First Aid guidance has been specifically designed to allow a teacher or youth leader to show young people how to deliver trauma first aid to an injured person or themselves whilst HIDING and waiting to be rescued by the police.
