Our model first aid policy is approved by Forbes Solicitors and designed for you to adapt to suit your school’s context. All of our model documents take account of relevant requirements and good practice. They are easy to adapt, and will save you time and help you keep your school compliant.

Please note: this model policy is aimed primarily at maintained schools and academies, but can be easily adapted to suit any school. If you wish to use the policy in a different type of setting – for example, a pupil referral unit or non-maintained special school – we recommend that you check this policy against any requirements or considerations specific to your context and adapt it accordingly.

For more model policies and complete policy support from The Key, see the Policy Bank.
