Lovely staff who have been sensitive and thoughtful to our group that contained some children with specific needs. Content clear and relevant.
We really look forward to this event – I feel it is an important part of the curriculum. The children receive such valuable life skills whilst having an enjoyable morning!
Another brilliant training session. We have been attending for ten years and it’s always informative and appropriate for our pupils (and adults!)
Thank you, so good, well organised, detailed and very valuable. One of the best things we do all year.
As a teacher, I also find it incredibly useful and a great opportunity to refresh my skills.
Thank you for the fantastic job you do, providing this training that is so important for our children at a time in their lives when they are becoming so much more independent. Back in the summer, one of the mums at school told me about the quick-thinking actions of her son, who had taken part in IMPS during the previous school year. When her face and neck were badly burnt by boiling hot honey that she had put in the microwave, it was her son who provided first aid. He said at the time that he knew exactly what to do as a result of IMPS. The staff at A & E said that it was his quick and effective action that meant she didn’t need skin grafts.
