Education & Child Care Settings

We run specialist courses for educational professionals.  We run daily activities within schools and know how difficult it can be sometimes to practice first aid on children and young people.  We give a no nonsense approach allowing you keep all that are in your care safe.

We are happy to come to your setting for half day, twilight or weekend training.  

One Day First Aid for Schools 

This course is fantastic for KS1 & KS2 Schools, giving confidence with often worrying topics such as Anaphylaxis and Asthma.

One Day Emergency Peadiatric First Aid 

This course is fantastic for child care settings. Childcare settings that need to comply with the Early Year Foundation Stage Statutory Framework should assess their needs and should consider training their team on the 2 day full Paediatric First Aid Course.  For au pairs, nannies, nursery staff, parents and carers.​​

TWO Day Peadiatric First Aid 

It's specifically written for child care settings to comply with the Early Years Foundation Stage Statutory Framework. Covering childhood illnesses and conditions in-depth, it also covers some adult first aid for big kids that get into scrapes too! For Primary schools, foster carers, au pairs, nursery staff, parents and carers.​

Understanding your schools responsibilities by the Department of Education is tabled below. 

Schools

  • Should have a policy and risk assessment for first aid in school.

  • Maintain health and safety law regarding first aid for teaching and support staff.

  • Make provision for when staff and children are off-site.

  • Provide adequate first aid kits and equipment.

  • Make arrangements for out of hours agreements, such as lettings and parent’s evening.

Headteachers

  • To put the school / governing body’s / academy’s policy into practice.

  • Develop detailed procedures.

  • Make sure that staff and parents are aware of the schools health & safety policy, including arrangements for first aid.

Staff

  • Don’t automatically include giving first aid, although staff may volunteer to undertake these tasks.

  • Should use their best endeavours at all times, particularly in emergencies, to secure the welfare of pupils.

  • In general, ‘the consequences of taking no action are likely to be more serious than those of trying to assist in an emergency.’
