Below are four Powerpoint presentations designed to help you raise half a heart awareness with teachers, school staff and pupils. There is also a parent guide to help you use the presentations.

Presentations one and two have been created  to help parents explain their child’s heart condition and their needs in school to staff members. If you can present during a staff meeting, or to as many members of staff, that would be ideal.

Presentations three and four are assembly presentations aimed at a child’s peers. There is one for primary school and one for secondary school.

Parent guide to presentations

The following booklet gives you a slide by slide guide on how to use the staff and assembly presentations.

So, as we all take baby steps towards normality, we ask the public to carry a new approach with you into the future - simply be mindful of vulnerable groups, always, even after Covid.
