Working in partnership

Many strategic action plans across the city and county have links to PSHE education, preparing, informing and educating children and young people is key to preventing future behaviours and attitudes.

These can and should be linked to the statutory guidance and curriculum to ensure that both formal and informal education providers can map the strategic outcomes to their curriculum as evidence for OFSTED and ensure that work is not duplicated or additional work created without the correct capacity. There are many organisations that link into PSHE education agendas and can support and enhance the curriculum and offer to schools. It is also important for education providers to be aware of emerging topics and themes within the locality and vice versa.

The PSHE Education Service can be a conduit for providing this flow of information to ensure that children and young people are receiving an PSHE education that is relevant to and for them.
