SHEU is currently providing survey services to the Youth Sports Trust:

The Youth Sports Trust – Sports College Surveys

This initiative actively supports the aims and outcomes of Every Child Matters and are being used to inform the proposed curriculum review scheduled for 2008.
Schools routinely use the data to provide evidence for ‘Healthy Schools’ and for their School Self Evaluation Forms.
Ultimately the initial focus of the initiative remains paramount: to provide measurable outcomes that can support the ethos of a ‘healthy active lifestyle’ within a School or Sports College.

"Within the curriculum, we are part of the Healthy Schools programme - and the local, Director of Public Health Award. We cover many facets of health from emotional intelligence to safety education and our very strong, Anti-Bullying and Child Protection programmes. You can imagine our delight when the Local Authority and our school nurse made the following comments after we took part in the regional Schools Health Education Unit Survey: " Head Teacher.
“This was an amazing set of outcomes and really good evidence that (your school) is doing a wonderful job in prioritizing the health and well-being of its pupils … Well done to staff, governors and parents for all your work on this through the Director of Public Health award and other strategies. It is very clear that pupils feel happy, safe and involved at the school and your caring ethos shines through this data.”

I've just spent a really interesting half an hour reading through our ...survey (report). Always food for thought and a good way to look at how we can improve.

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your work regarding writing and compiling the sex education survey. The survey was well executed and the schools have found their individual reports very helpful. The results of the survey have enabled the Local Campaign Group to justify the need for young men's campaigns and given us invaluable insight as to the thoughts and experiences of this target group."
