The Injury Minimisation Programme for Schools (IMPS) empowers young people to take personal responsibility for managing their own risk and equips them with the skills to cope in an emergency. All of our Year 6 pupils take part in this programme.
Much of the work on safety and accident prevention is performed in the classroom during normal curricular lessons, however to complement classroom work, there is an exciting hospital based element to the programme.
Please have a look at their website www.impsweb.co.uk.
Year 6 will be visiting the John Radcliffe Hospital on Friday 6th October and the visit will last from 10 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. The coach will leave school at 9.15 a.m. and the children will need to bring a packed lunch to eat when we return as we will not be back in time for lunch. We are asking for a contribution of £4.00 to cover the cost of transport and insurance. Kindly please complete the ParentMail form and online payments (or cheques can be made payable to Garsington Primary School please).
During the visit the children will have the opportunity to tour the Accident and Emergency Department to familiarise themselves with the hospital and equipment used. They will watch an inter-active video concentrating on accident prevention and demonstrating basic first aid procedures.
On the day of the visit please ensure that your child is wearing appropriate clothing for role-play on the floor (trousers please), no unsafe shoes or jewellery.
