People who help us

As part of your KS2 Citizenship lessons, you will learn about people who help us. Emergency services and rescue services are people who help us. As well as these services, there are many people in school, at home or out in the community who help us in lots of ways. Some people’s jobs are all about helping others such as when we are sick.

Throughout your life there will be times when you will require help such as if you have an accident or discover a fire. It’s important to know what to do and who to ask for help in these situations. There is a very easy telephone number to call in an emergency and it’s crucial to know this number without having to look it up or ask someone.
