Each year our staff attend Paediatric First Aid Training refresher courses onsite at our premises in Beulah Road. This year the training is scheduled on Saturday 13th April.
This course covers everything our staff need to know on helping a sick, injured or ill child, prior to the arrival of the emergency services.
The Paediatric First Aid (12hr) award meets the requirements of Ofsted and is therefore suitable for teachers to complete their registrations. It follows the latest guidelines from the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) to give our staff peace of mind when looking after young children.
Through the use of practicals, short lectures and real life videos staff learn about the following subjects and many more:
- Checking for signs of breathing
- Assessment of injuries
- Recovery position
- Infant and child resuscitation (CPR)
- Bleeds and shock management
- Childhood illnesses
