Paediatric First Aid training course; 15-16 October 2020

The paediatric first aid requirements in the Early Years Foundation Stage statutory framework (EYFS) apply to all early years’ provision including school reception classes. This means that at least one person who has a current paediatric first aid certificate must be on the premises and available at all times when children are present, and must accompany children on outings.

The Strategic Risk Management Team have had a number of enquiries about Paediatric First Aid Training – we will be running a 2 day Paediatric First Aid Course on Thursday 15 and Friday 16 October 2020 at Thameside Centre in Staines – details below. If there is a big demand we will endeavour to add another course.


Paediatric 2 day First Aid Training Course for Schools 2020

This course will focus on emergency scenarios that are faced by professionals looking after young children.
It can also be used as evidence for employees working towards an NVQ in Childcare and Education.


The course will cover:

  • First aid kit
  • Action planning
  • Treatment of an unconscious casualty
  • Resuscitation
  • Choking
  • Asthma and diabetic emergencies
  • Head injuries
  • Seizures
  • Bleeding
  • Burns
  • Sprains, strains and fractures
  • Poisoning, bites and stings
  • Foreign objects
  • Childhood conditions (e.g. measles, meningitis, croup).

Course duration: 12 hours (9.00am – 3.30pm for 2 days)
Date: Thursday 15 October and Friday 16 October 2020 at Thameside Centre, Wyatt Road, Staines, TW18 2AY.

The 2 day course will cost £150 per person for surrey schools and academies in the buyback scheme and £195 for independent schools/academies that don’t buyback. The fee includes a first aid certificate.

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide either food or refreshments for the course so please bring these along with you. You are welcome to eat or drink at the venue as there are no shops nearby.


If you would like to attend, please book via the Services for Schools portal, go to 'Training & Events', type in 'Paediatric' and it will bring up the course.
