Our very own Hero!

On Friday 16th April 2021 we were visited by Durham Constabulary for a very special reason. Just before the Easter holidays I nominated Jake Emerson in the Ruby Learning Zone for a Durham Constabulary Hero Award and on Friday our local officers came into school to present Jake with his certificate and a voucher from Amazon.

Jake is our very own hero and we are all incredibly proud of him. Jake saved the life of his cousin who was choking on a sweet. He remained very calm and tried using the back slap method first, when this didn’t work he then use the Abdominal Thrust method which thankfully worked and dislodged the sweet.

It is incredible that such a young child knew exactly what to do and this is thanks to his parents who have taught all of their children how to save someone from choking.

Jake was very modest but also very proud of his actions and his cousin will be eternally grateful.

Everyone at Stanhope Barrington CofE Primary School is extremely proud of Jake and as a result of his actions our First Aid training will now be delivered to even our youngest children not just those in KS2.

Well done Jake – what a credit you are to yourself, your family and your school.
