Accident, Illness and Emergency Policy

Accident and emergency:

It is my policy that when children are in my care I will keep them safe.

My premises have been checked and they meet the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage in England. I also regularly review, update and practise my safety routines, including fire drills.

As a registered childminder, I am legally required to have a valid first-aid certificate before registration. I can administer basic first-aid treatment, and my first-aid box is clearly labelled and easily accessible. It is stored [you may want to say where]. Parent contact numbers are with the first-aid box.

I hold written permission from each of the children’s parents in their record form files to enable me to seek emergency treatment for their child if it’s needed.

All accidents will be recorded in an accident book.

As a registered provider I must notify Ofsted of any serious accidents, illnesses or injuries or the death of any child whilst in my care and any action I may have taken within 14 days of an incident occurring.

If I am in need of support or advice regarding a serious illness or incident involving a child in my care I may contact National Childminding Association who will log information regarding the incident with regard to their safeguarding policy. A NCMA designated officer will be assigned to my case and all the information given to them will be kept confidentially unless their appears to be a child protection issue which will be reported accordingly.

If an accident or incident involving a child in my care may result in an insurance claim I will contact my public liability insurance provider to discuss my case and be allocated a claim number. This may involve discussing details of the child in my care with a third party.

I also have an arrangement with another registered childminder to provide emergency back-up cover if necessary.
