Referendums and Resignations
Missed last month’s insights? Click here to catch up with our news roundup, including a look at the latest Ofsted and 30 hours information! We also took a look at cycling (I did quite a bit of it this month) and had the usual inspirations!
This month zoe decided to take a short holiday so as well as her (slightly shorter than usual) inspirations, we clubbed together and between us found some hard work we did a year a go about water play.
Having been on the horizon since the beginning of the year, we have now had confirmation that from September all new staff qualifying at level 2 or 3 must have (at least) Emergency Paediatric First Aid to count in ratios. New employee’s will have a 3 month grace period to get qualified.
The consultation was short and sweet and most people agreed with the changes. Indeed, we work with many nurseries who insist all staff are First Aid trained – something that will soon mean you can obtain Millie’s Mark. The NDNA will be delivering this voluntary mark of quality and you can already register your interest.
Remember – any accredited organisation can deliver your training, you can see our courses here.
