The Government has recently released an update to the EYFS Statutory Framework for Paediatric First Aid, following a consultation regarding the requirements of First Aid provisions within Nursery and Childcare settings. The full report can be downloaded by following this link: https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/532503/PFA_Consultation_findings_and_response.PDF.
Page 10 of this document outlines the Government’s response to the findings, and their proposed changes include the mandatory training of all Level 2 and Level 3 candidates in Paediatric First Aid within 3 months of completing their Childcare qualification, in order for them to be included in ratio numbers.
Subject to Parliamentary approval, the Government intends to publish the amendments with a view to them coming into force from the 1st September 2016. A revised EYFS will be published alongside this update to reflect the proposed changes.
