the Every Child Matters agenda and our surveys

Every Child Matters was the policy framework established by the 1997-2010 Labour Government to improve outcomes for young people. It had five areas:
* Be Healthy
* Stay Safe
* Enjoy and Achieve
* Make a Positive Contribution
* Economic Well-Being
Much of our questionnaire work over the last few years has been carried out with this framework in mind, and you will see frequent reference to it on this website. We do know that the current Government have decided to at least change the emphasis regarding policy for children and young people, and as always we will adapt our services to match the changing priorities of our clients.
At SHEU we are confident that the principles put in place for our services by John Balding over thirty years ago still hold good.  The central idea is that better debates are had and better decisions get made when you have better information, whether you are a child, a teacher, or a parent… or even Secretary of State.

Comments about SHEU

"We would like to take part in the next ECM survey. We have found the data produced invaluable for supporting evidence in our SEF etc."

School Vice Principal

I think the HRBQ is an absolutely wonderful, informative tool and I am keen to really encourage schools/other relevant partners (as appropriate) to utilise this invaluable data to encourage voice of the child, and subsequently contribute to shaping priorities and services.

"Over the last twenty years you have achieved much. The surveys and subsequent reports have painted the clearest picture we have of what young people are doing and what they think." Tribute from OFSTED to John Balding, presented at his retirement lunch, May 2005

Please could our College be part of the SHEU survey this academic year? We did it in 2016 and 2017 and found it incredibly informative and it helped us shape our PSHE provision.

Assistant Principal

"As a result of the survey we reviewed and amended PSHE schemes of work, we are currently working on a "Green Travel Plan", a morning breakfast club was established and we further developed 6th Form mentoring."

Health Education Coordinator

"The data for (us) are very useful ... This is especially important when evaluating the impact of interventions regarding alcohol or other areas, as the survey data are likely to provide an earlier indication than routine data sources."

Specialist Registrar in Public Health

"Many thanks to SHEU for your excellent professional support over the years."

PSHE teacher

"Just to say a huge thank you for all your efforts in helping us with the Health survey amongst pupils. It has provided us with significant data which will be used across the school to help us improve. It helped us to obtain a healthy schools standard as well. I hope we can make this an annual feature as we can track the changing health of our pupils." Headteacher

"The Schools Health Education Unit has been a unique inspiration to all of us. For me, as I have worked in the many different areas of the NHS, the SHEU, its principles and your determination have always been a cornerstone in what a health promoting service should be about."
