Newsletter August 2016

In this month's members' newsletter we have information about the new requirement for all newly qualified staff to have a paediatric first aid certificate in order to be counted in early years staffing ratios. We also have news about the government's consultation on the proposed mandatory reporting of child abuse or neglect, and we give our feedback on the recent guidance for schools on the right of parents to request wraparound care. We also review the implications to you as an employer of hiring staff from outside the UK. We have some tips for getting your club ready for the new school term, as well as two great new activity ideas for keeping the children entertained.
