I have been to I.M.P.S. every year for the last 5 years and I think it’s extremely important for the year 6’s as they learn so much during the visit. There’s a good balance between theory and practical activities and the staff are always so friendly and welcoming.
Over the years there have been several occasions when Y6 children have needed to put the skills they have learnt at IMPS into practice in real life.

I have found the IMPS trip very helpful and now I know what to do when someone is unconscious. DRSABC is very helpful to know because now I know how to save someone’s life.I hope that I can visit IMPS again.
We are really pleased that you found the I.M.P.S. visit helpful.
When I first did the quiz I got a very low score. Since the trip though, I got 100%!
Well done! That is just the result we hope for. The trick is to remember everything and get a high score again.
It is a fun way to learn and I loved wearing a plaster cast, I’ve still got it now and I wore it all the way back to school. I loved lerning about how you deal with unchonchus people,
Thank you for making my morning amazing.
We hope you remember the skills you were taught at I.M.P.S. Don’t forget to let us know if you ever use any of them when you are older.
I loved wearing my plaster cast and learnt a lot about keeping yourself safe and not the person injured.
I thought it was a great experience all of us enjoyed it a lot and I would just like to say thank you.
ps. I wore my plaster cast all day
We are pleased you remembered the important message to “keep yourself safe”
Thanks for teaching us about the recovery position and c.p.r. as soon as i got back from school I put my parents in the recovery position and I really liked the plaster casts because it is really impressive how a little thing can become a rock solid finger cast.
Hi there, We love hearing about our I.M.P.S. students practicing the recovery position! We have a gallery at the moment with photos of toys in the recovery position and would love it if you could send us one. (you can send a photo of your parents instead if they don’t mind) Click here to have a look at the gallery.
We agree about the chemical reaction with the plaster of paris – it is fun!
I feel confident that once I’ve done this test I can do the right thing and give other people instructions for helping someone hurt as I am doing lifeguard training
Good luck with your lifeguard training. You will definitely find your I.M.P.S. skills useful.
i told some people at my school about it and now they know lots about the recovery position now because we role played in the schools p.e lesson.
That is really good news. We are always excited when our classes pass on these important messages. Perhaps you can think about doing the recovery position challenge to raise some funds for I.M.P.S. (your teacher has the details)
I absolutely loved imps I learnt soooooooooo much and will know what to do in the future. I loved getting my finger cast and thank everyone at the imps centre in Henley ????????????????
Great to hear you have learnt so much and hope that you keep in touch with us if you ever have to use any of your emergency skills or if you ever prevent an injury by taking a safer risk.
Thank you for teaching me today i enjoyed c.p.r i really it will help me to help people (like miss green) and really like the finger cast (i still have it) 😀
Have you found your nearest AED yet?
