  • Outstanding Achievement-Idsall Students Win Young Enterprise Company of the Year for Shropshire

    Published 08/05/19

    Our Young Enterprise team, “Scrambled”, comprising of 9 students have won the very prestigious award of “Company Of The Year”, and now move forward to represent the region at the West Midlands finals at HSBC headquarters in Birmingham on June 6th. Scrambled is based on recycling, reviving and reusing old board games for other uses rather than them being discarded as rubbish. The team have focused on making coasters, picture frames, key rings and other household and personal artefacts using the board game pieces.

    15 schools and 22 teams from across Telford & Wrekin and Shropshire took part in the Young Enterprise national competition, where companies had to compete across 4 different aspects - Trade Fairs, Presentation, Company Report and Dragons Den interview, where they were given a score out of 100 points.

    The competition culminated in the awards evening at Telford Centre Hotel on Thursday 2nd May, with Idsall being nominated for 9 awards and winning 4.

    These were:

    • Most Enterprising Business
    • Best Presentation
    • Best Live Presentation
    • Company Of The Year

    We wish them continued success in the next stage of the competition.

  • News Article on CPR Training Day at Idsall

    Shifnal students take CPR skills to heart

    By Lisa O'Brien | Shifnal | School events | Published: 6 hours ago

    Scores of pupils at a Shifnal school were taught life-saving skills as part of World Restart A Heart Day.

    Staff and volunteers from West Midlands Ambulance Service (WMAS) have been teaching CPR to thousands of schoolchildren across Shropshire and the West Midlands.

    The Restart a Heart Day campaign is run by the British Heart Foundation (BHF) and Resuscitation Council, with help from the emergency services.

    About 150 pupils and more than a dozen staff at Idsall School took part in the training with two community first responders on Tuesday. (16)

    Jennie Reeve, senior learning manager at Idsall School, said: “There were 30 minute sessions throughout the day. They were shown a video and then had the chance to try out CPR on a dummy. They were also taught the procedure about what to do if you come across someone who might need CPR.

    “It’s the first year we’ve done it but it’s definitely something we would do again.”


    Each year, WMAS attends up to 4,000 cardiac arrests in the community. Last year, 79 of the 334 heart related conditions Midlands Air Ambulance Charity responded to were in Shropshire.

    The BHF has highlighted that if a person suffers a cardiac arrest outside of a hospital in the UK, they have less than a one in 10 chance of surviving. For every minute after the patient’s heart has stopped, their chance of survival also drops by 10 per cent.

    WMAS community response manager, Cliff Medlicott said: “By training children at school that CPR is easy to do we make sure that they aren’t afraid should it ever happen to a loved one of theirs, but we also stress that they need to act immediately.

    “We know that many of the children go home and tell their parents about what they have been up to and they in turn learn the skills. Our staff say saving a patient in cardiac arrest is the greatest success they can have so imagine what it would be like if your child made the difference to your life.

    “Together CPR and receiving a shock from a defibrillator as soon as possible will give the bets chance of saving a person’s life.
