As part of the investment plans considered at Bradford Council Executive in February 2017, it is agreed that the Injury Minimisation Programme (IMP), currently commissioned by Public Health, will discontinue from 1 October 2017. This is following a period
of public and stakeholder consultation.
The IMP is aimed at all Year 6 children in all primary schools and its purpose is to reduce injuries and empower young people to take personal responsibility for managing their own risk. Year 6 Pupils will no longer have access to training and visits to
the hospital as was offered as part of this programme however other prevention activities are being mainstreamed into the wider transformation plan for children, young people and families in the District.
The Council has other existing training and resources available to schools from the Road Safety Team including pedestrian, cycling and in car safety sessions for Year 6 pupils and sessions on transition safety available in the summer term when pupils are
preparing for secondary schools. If you would like to access this service, please contact the Road Safety team on 01274 437409 to book sessions.
If you would like any further information, please do not hesitate to contact Ruksana Sardar-Akram on 01274 432767.
