We would like to remind settings and schools
that it is a requirement that "At least one person who has a current paediatric first aid certificate must be on the premises
at all times when children are present.
There must be at least one person on outings who has a current paediatric first aid
certificate." EYFS Statutory Framework
Through discussions with practitioners it has come
to our attention that the nominated first aider does not necessarily have the paediatric first aid certificate and we would therefore strongly advise that
settings and schools check that they meet this
