Where are the new guidelines? In the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage
Who do these guidelines apply to? This framework is mandatory for all Early Years Providers (from 1 September 2014) for maintained schools; non-maintained schools; independent schools and all providers on the Early Years Register; and all providers registered with an Early Years childminder Agency.
What are the new guidelines? At least one person who has a current paediatric first aid certificate must be on the premises and available at all times when children are present, and must accompany children on outings. Childminders, and any assistant who might be in sole charge of the children for any period of time, must hold a current paediatric first aid certificate. Paediatric first aid training (18) must be relevant for workers caring for young children and where relevant, babies. Providers should take into account the number of children, staff and layout of premises to ensure that a paediatric first aider is able to respond to emergencies quickly.
What is a relevant First Aid Certificate? Providers can choose which organisation they wish to provide the training (preferably one with a nationally approved and accredited first aid qualification or one that is a member of a trade body with an approval and monitoring scheme) but the training must cover the course content as for St John Ambulance or Red Cross paediatric first aid training and be renewed every three years.
