Did you know that I.M.P.S. sends every school and teacher a prepared monthly topical lesson to deliver during circle or group time using a white board.
They cover a variety of topical subjects, e.g. the March lesson linked with National No Smoking day.
We send these special lessons via mailchimp which allows us to link with relevant films and resources.

"We do not provide training like this at school so it is very important to us. The children can apply their scientific knowledge e.g. circulatory system to their learning."

Instead of paying for this delicious sandwich and coffee today, why not sponsor one of our marathon runners and bring a packed lunch instead? #warmfuzzyfeeling 
Meet our fantastic London Marathon runners.

Our runners in the Virgin London Marathon are:

Eleanor Pratley who is a teacher at Madley Brook

chool and makes his children run a marathon at school to help with his fundraising.

Nikki Charley who is one of our supporters

If you would like to sponsor any of our team, please click on their name to be taken to their justgiving page.  Every penny raised will go towards paying for I.M.P.S. training for local Oxfordshire children. 
Please pledge the cost of a sandwich and coffee towards supporting our team. (or more than the cost of a sandwich and coffee if you are a very kind person)

This term we welcomed 5 new members of the team.
Sam, Mo, Tracey, Sheena and Fiona have recently joined I.M.P.S. as trainers.
It signals a return to the team for Sam who last worked as a trainer in 2004. 

Sam says "I have just started to work again with the lovely I.M.P.S. team based at the John Radcliffe.

I first became involved with this wonderful scheme, back in 2004 and was sorry I had to leave when I started another job that left me no spare time to dedicate to I.M.P.S.

I have recently retired and found that I started to miss the hustle and bustle of the hospital and the rewarding feeling of being involved in a team who do something that I feel is so valuable. It is great to know that we are having a positive effect increasing child safety, minimising preventable accidents and injuries seen in A&E, teaching first aid and building confidence to deal with emergency situations should they arise."
