      Personal, social, health and economic education in schools Report
      • Overall provision good or outstanding in three quarters of the schools visited
      • Personal development good in most of the schools visited. Pupils had positive attitudes towards PSHE education
      • Wide range of extra-curricular activities where pupils could apply and develop their PSHE learning
      • Good knowledge and understanding of healthy eating and the importance of exercise
      • Positive impact of National Healthy School programme, the PSHE certificate and SEAL
      Key findings
      • PSHE teaching was good or outstanding in over three quarters of the schools visited. The more effective schools used a range of external agencies
      • In a quarter of lessons, teachers lacked subject knowledge and expertise resulting in lessons that were dull and superficial
      • Lack of discrete curriculum time in a quarter of the schools visited, areas that suffered; SRE; drugs education and mental health issues
      Key findings
      • Parents rarely involved with or consulted about PSHE education
      • The assessment and tracking of pupils’ progress in PSHE education weakest aspect - inadequate in 15 of the 73 secondary schools visited
      • Patchy provision for economic well-being and financial capability
      Key findings
      • The Department for Education should:
      • ensure teachers training for PSHE education and promote the take-up of continuing professional development in PSHE education
      • support schools in implementing the revised guidance on sex and relationships education and drugs education
      • support the development of good practice in assessing PSHE education, and publicise this widely to schools.
      • Local authorities should:
      • consider how they can support schools most effectively in developing PSHE education programmes by providing access to high-quality continuing professional development
      • facilitate networks of teachers to develop PSHE knowledge and skills and, in particular, encourage the involvement of schools where the provision is weak.
      • Schools should:
      • ensure that the timetable is organised so PSHE education is coherent, comprehensive and of high quality
      • meet the needs of pupils for teaching about high-risk areas such as sex and relationships, drugs and mental health issues
      • make lessons active, compelling and relevant, and ensure that teachers have the specialist knowledge, training and skills they need to teach PSHE education successfully
      • implement systems for assessing and tracking pupils’ progress in PSHE education
      • involve and consult parents more in developing and implementing the PSHE curriculum, so they are aware of the topics being covered.
