New stretch target

The Edventure Collaborative is a federation of two community primary schools, Montem and Drayton Park. Both are unique, autonomous schools, with their own ethos and values, focused above all on serving the needs of their children and families. Both also work together, in creative partnership, to support each other, challenge each other and grow.

We are fundraising to buy a defibrillator for both schools. Should one school exceed their fundraising target, the excess will be put towards buying a defibrillator in the other school in the federation.

Keeping our pupils safe is at the heart of all our endeavours at Drayton Park Primary School. 

A sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) can occur to anyone, at any time and at any age. Tragically, 12 young people die from cardiac arrest each week in the UK.

We are raising funds to both buy a defibrillator for Drayton Park School and to train staff on its use to help keep our pupils, staff and the wider community safe. 

An Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is a portable life-saving device that can give a casualty’s heart an electric shock when it has stopped beating normally in a sudden cardiac arrest. The chance of survival from a sudden cardiac arrest increases from 6% to over 74% when CPR and a defibrillator are used. 

We need to raise a total of £1,100 for the defibrillator and training.
