At IMHS we are providing a rich and diverse set of educational and developmental interventions, activities and experiences for our students.
Our school day consists of live lessons and activities, for the length of a normal school day, running between 9am and 3pm.
We recognise that some of our students usually take part with bespoke interventions, including Speech & Language, 1:1 literacy & numeracy,
individual support from our Well-being Team and other activities such as SoundSkool and therapeutic interventions supported by our Undergraduate
Interns and we are pleased to inform that they will continue to be facilitated remotely. The weekly timetable will be sent to each student and their
family so that you are informed of the scheduled activities for you child each week.
The virtual curriculum mirrors the broad range of subjects, activities and interventions that would normally be delivered in the physical school. This includes Maths, English, Science, Art, PSHE, Food & Nutrition, PE and also continues to incorporate Salon Skills sessions, so that we can maintain our focus on matters of health, hygiene and self-care throughout these difficult times. SoundSkool are continuing to provide sessions teaching music production and recording, supported also by continuing Digital Media lessons throughout the week.
Our virtual offer also extends opportunities for learning to the parents and families of our students and includes ‘drop in’ sessions through the week facilitated by our ‘Family Engagement Officer’ with contributions from a variety of professionals with expertise in parenting, dieting & health, nutrition and many other disciplines. We will also be providing weekly aromatherapy, Health & Beauty and Hair Styling sessions provided by industry specialists. Families in need of some ideas for lunches and dinners can access sessions with our school chef through the TEAM ‘Laura’s Light Lunches’ where recipes from the live sessions will be available to help with feeding the family healthy, tasty and nutritious meals.
