Back to Local Authority services

Schools are in an unique position to offer an almost universal public health intervention for children and young people, and also have excellent links to families and communities. High-quality Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education delivered in schools can make a significant contribution to meeting a range of public health outcomes.

     "PSHE education forms a bridge between education and public health."

We support local authorities and schools to deliver PSHE education tailored to public health priorities.

Quality PSHE education can drive improvements in key Public Health Outcome Indicators. These include reductions in:

  • Under 18 conceptions
  • Excess weight in 4-5 and 10-11 year olds
  • Smoking prevalence in 15 year olds
  • Hospital admissions as a result of self-harm
  • Alcohol related admissions to hospital
  • Chlamydia diagnoses in 15-24 year olds

We offer teachers and public health teams the training and support they need to deliver on local public health priorities

The biggest challenge for schools in delivering public health outcomes is staff training - or lack of it. There is very little initial teacher training in public health, and none for PSHE education specifically. Working with local authorities, we have offered schools and public health teams area-specific training and support in delivering PSHE education which is tailored to local public health priorities.
