Schools and Childe Care Centres Banner

The St John Safe Program officially recognises schools and child care centres that are ready for any first aid situation.

It is a way of identifying and communicating to parents, the wider school community and the public that you have the right first aid training, equipment and systems in place to deal with an emergency situation. It is recognition that your school or centre has met their first aid obligations, and it is peace of mind for parents knowing that their children are in safe hands. 

How does it work?

We will come out to your school or child care centre and conduct a St John Safe Assessment. Our first aid officer will compile detailed recommendations to assist you in becoming St John Safe.

We will work with you to create a bespoke package that may include: 

First aid trainingFirst Aid Courses

A number of spots on relevant first aid courses for your staff, assisting you in having an appropriate level of trained first aiders.


Provision of defibrillators, making this potentially lifesaving device much more accessible. Included is training and regular servicing.

First aid kitsFirst Aid Kits

The appropriate number and type of first aid kits will be provided. Plus let us take over the responsibility for monitoring your kit levels through our restocking service.

First aid sessionFirst Aid Session

Introductory child-specific first aid session for groups of parents and family members run by our team onsite at your school or centre. A great way to help families be first aid prepared at home.

How can your school or centre be St John Safe?

Once your St John Safe Assessment has been completed and appropriate training, equipment and systems have been implemented you will be considered St John Safe. You will be presented a certificate to formally recognise your St John Safe endorsement.
