PSHE news digest 9th - 16th October

A new study from the University of Hertfordshire’s Health Behaviours of School-aged Children (HBSC) has found that ‘emotional wellbeing may be decreasing while physical health is improving’. The report which was published on 15th October undertook surveys with 5,335 young people aged 11, 13 and 15 and suggests that improvements in young people’s health behaviours do not extend to their overall life satisfaction, reinforcing concerns about pupil mental and emotional wellbeing.
