We can walk to a local school. The 2 keyworkers of the children visiting are level 2 (working towards 3) we cant spare another member of staff. They are First Aid trained, would you allow them to go?

Am I missing something. How many children are they taking????

 

I've just been reading the updated for Sept EYFS, do you need to cover the ratio's and the outings sections?

I thought it would be that.......not an issue for us as everyone is qualified to level 3 anyway apart from 1 member of staff. Must make it awkward for settings that only have 1 level 3 and all others level 2 though surely? Can't be in two places at one time I guess.......

I was not clear. The children are visiting their new school with their Key worker. The choice is as we are short staffed .1 level 2 member of staff(key worker) and a supply staff level 3 -that does not know the other child or 2 levl 2 staff.

I have asked else where to and the answer I got was for me to risk assess and that there did not have to be a level 3 on the 5 minute walk as long as First Aid trained, they both are. As the rules are now one level 3 in charge of a setting and 50% level 2 and the other unqualified you could be in a very small setting with 4 staff and only one level 3 so the group could never split and post a letter, buy some flour etc. Child minders dont have to be level 3 or out of school staff.

Ofsted said 'grey area' and to use my professional judgement . So I have decided best practice is to send level 3 when possible but to use my knowledge of the staff I am sending to call it eg level 2 but over 10 years experience / or level 3 qualified yesterday and not really knowing the child.

Ps they always have aphone ad first aid kit with them too.
