Support, Advice & Guidance

We recognise that staff do not always feel confident in delivering certain topics within the PSHE education curriculum and those leading the subject within organisations can often feel isolated, overwhelmed and unsure if what they are doing is correct.

PSHE covers a broad range of topics and often, knowing where to go for quality, age-appropriate resources and support, can be a challenge.

The PSHE education service provides an opportunity to change that.

As well as the PSHE Education Service’s website, we have developed a service offer to provide support, advice and guidance. This includes:

  • The PSHE digest – a monthly newsletter containing information about resources, training opportunities, updates from local and national partners. Please ensure we have details of your PSHE Lead so they can receive this information directly. 
  • PSHE Leads Meetings – Half-termly meetings that focuses on different aspects of PSHE education best practice and gives PSHE Leads a safe space to share challenges, ideas and meet people in similar positions Pan-Staffordshire.
  • PSHE Practice Development Sessions – These meetings support anyone who delivers PSHE education to increase their knowledge and confidence in different topics covered by the curriculum. Subject specialists are invited to share their knowledge and expertise and build links with those delivering PSHE.
  • … & PSHE series – A localised series of guidance packs to support linking the topic to curriculum and statutory guidance and also information to upskill staff delivering PSHE with information about signposting, national and local statistics as well as key information to develop subject knowledge.
  • Best Practice guides – Information to advise and guide education providers in implementing best practice in their own settings.
