We are often asked to 'kick-start' the composition of local reports based on our survey work. Many authorities have consulted with us right the way through to publication. We have also been invited to attend events as a reporter, resulting in publications like Asthma in the Classroom (National Asthma Campaign). MORE about our reports

Layout and printing
We design and typeset our own questionnaires, reports and our journal Education and Health. We can undertake layout, desk-top publishing and printing for surveys, booklets, and more substantial works.

Databank analysis
Our existing databanks of health-related behaviour can be analysed to search for particular connections and has been borrowed for a number of projects, most notably in the evaluation of the National Healthy Schools Programme.



Comments about SHEU

"Thanks for presenting the survey to local schools this morning, I just wanted to thank you for such interesting and thought-provoking information.  
I’m really glad we were able to take part - the information (particularly headline data and differences) will support us to have some really interesting questions with the Year group as a whole about the sense they’re making of this; what they think it might mean in terms of changes they might make, and what they need to support them in this."

Deputy Headteacher

Thank you for following up with schools the comments that caused concern. It is very sad to hear that some of our children have these thoughts and feelings and I am so grateful that you were able to make the schools aware of this so that they can attempt to offer some support.

This is another reason why I am so pleased that we have been able to work with you to offer this survey.

"One year (following the SHEU survey) responses from our Year 4 cohort caused us concern, so we put in place a number of team building, motivational projects. We then assessed their effectiveness by requesting the SHEU questionnaires for these pupils as Year 5's."
