The Manchester I.M.P.S. team was treated to a VIP visit when the Chief Executive of Public Health England, Duncan Selbie made a special effort to drop in on the department whilst visiting the organisation.
Mr Selbie has been interested in the progress of I.M.P.S. and its associated projects (ELFS (Early Learning for Safety) & ORCS (Opportunities for Resuscitation & Citizen Safety) since becoming aware of the work which is led by Programme Manager Sally Morton.
Pupils and staff from St Chrysostom’s C of E Primary School were on hand to explain how valuable they found the programme. Sally said: “We receive lots of positive feedback from children, young people, parents/carers and teachers about the importance and benefits of what we teach. It was great for our team, CMFT & Public Health Manchester to know that the work that we do is recognised and valued at national level too.”
Mr Selbie added: “It was great to have the opportunity to meet the Year 6 children and teachers. No one could better explain the value of I.M.P.S. Thank you to everyone involved.”
