School First Aid V Early Years First Aid

Recommended Posts

A number of our staff need their first aid renewing. The school that we are forming a partnership Foundation Stage Unit with are in the same situation. We thought it would be good to combine the training, but the school usually have St. Johns ambulance give a first aid for schools training on an INSET day, which they are unsure if it is alright for the pre-school staff, as it is not the Early Years First aid course, but a school one. It seems a bit mad :o to me though as we are setting up a FSU so both sets of staff will be looking after the same children. What do school nurseries do, or other FSUs do?

I'm not sure about that one. I know when I was a teacher we did the First Aid for Schools on an INSET day, and I've recently done the Early Years First Aid with St JOhn's Ambulance.

 

I know I certainly found that latter much more appropriate, and certainly comprehensive. Also it was 2 full days.

Interested to read this. We are a foundation Stage funded in the morning and the F2's go into a k.s.1 room p.m We now have an afternoon club looking after a few of the younger children. They are doing loads of stuff relating to the national standards and have recently done a first aid in school with our other T.A. s I think it was a St John's ambulance. I've never heard of a different one for early years

Hello,

 

I had a valid First Aid certificate that I did with the rest of the school staff (6hr) but had to do a 12 hour course only last month. It covered a little bit more about children but that was about it.
