White Rock Pre-school staff are able to take action to apply first aid treatment in the event of an accident involving a child or adult. A minimum 50% of the pre-school staff have current first aid training and are on the premises or on an outing at any one time.
The First Aid Kit
Our first aid kit complies with the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 2018. The first aid box is easily accessible to adults and is kept out of the reach of children.
No un-prescribed medication is given to children,
Any first aid given to a child will be documented in our accident book and signed by the parent/carer.
At the time of admission to the setting, parents' written permission for emergency medical advice or treatment is sought. Parents sign and date their written approval.
Parents sign a consent form at registration allowing staff to take their child to the nearest Accident and Emergency unit to be examined, treated or admitted as necessary on the understanding that parents have been informed and are on their way to the hospital.
