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 statutory requirement.
