We provide support to schools and academies for all aspects of Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education (PSHCE) including meeting the new statutory requirements for Relationships, Sex and Health Education. This crucially enables school staff to develop PSHCE as a whole-school improvement strategy.

    We can offer PSHCE support for all phases for both pupils and staff, including the following:

    Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE), and Health Education

    Wellbeing advisers provide a wide range of support that will assist schools in meeting the demands of the RSHE curriculum in primary and secondary schools. Support to enable schools to ensure they are ready to meet statutory requirements include:

    • reviewing current practice and putting new guidance into practice
    • policy development and curriculum design
    • parent consultation support

    Flourishing mindfully in schools

    This unique programme, delivered directly to school or academy staff, combines the principles of mindfulness, positive psychology, and action for happiness.

    The programme encourages teachers to use “growth mindsets” as a whole‑school approach. The programme also aims to demystify a large body of psychological research, by providing a practical course that not only helps to benefit teachers’ emotional health and wellbeing but offers realistic teaching ideas to trial within the school.

    The benefits of mindfulness are well documented and schools have much to give by explaining this approach. The programme is most-effective when run for two hours per week over a four-week period.

    PSHCE/spiritual, moral, social and cultural development review

    The review encompasses evidence from lesson and assembly observations, along with the school or academy’s PSHCE scheme of work including all relevant policies, procedures, subject paperwork, display boards and the overall whole‑school approach.

    Strengths are identified and recorded, areas for improvement identified and suggestions offered, with an action plan created to support progress.
