Childminding UK accident, injury and incident form is an important document for childminders and all early years’ providers. The Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (accident or injury p.28 3.50) states: Providers must keep written records of accidents or injuries and first aid treatment. Providers must inform parents and/or carers of any accident or injury sustained by a child on the same day as, or as soon as reasonably practical after, and of any first aid treatment.
The form is to be used when a child or adult has an accident whilst under the care of the childminder or whilst working or visiting the early years setting. Use this form to record the details of the accident/incident and ensure all adults sign to agree they have been informed and acknowledge the event. These forms should be kept and stored in line with your confidentiality policy.
