Quarter 1 June 2018 performance
The data is now measured annually for the financial year and published at the end of March. The current year’s programme is in progress.
For 2017/18: 89 students completing the course with 89 all attaining Heartstart. The reduction in numbers on the previous year was due to a lack of appropriately trained staff to deliver the programme.
Students attend a fire station for a week, taking part in a structured, disciplined programme of events that combines practical training with classroom-based workshops. Young people are nominated by their school from years 8 and 9 for FireBreak for a variety of reasons, such as:
  • low self-esteem and confidence
  • being bullied or bullying
  • being on the brink of exclusion from school
  • generally struggling within the school environment
