What is RSS?

RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication". It is a simple way of easily distributing news, lists of headlines, updates and sometimes content, instantly and to a wide number of people. Software such as web browsers, email programs and RSS aggregators then organize those headlines and notices for easy reading. Most of  the latest versions of web browsers and email programs have RSS functionality built in but you can also get standalone, downloadable applications specifically to handle RSS feeds.

How does RSS work?

RSS works by having the website author maintain a list of the latest information and short descriptions on their website in a standardised way. This list of notifications is called an "RSS Feed".

People who are interested in finding out the latest headlines or updates can check this list. Special computer programs called "RSS aggregators" have been developed that automatically access the RSS feeds of websites you're interested in and organize the results for you. (RSS feeds and aggregators are also sometimes called "RSS Channels" and "RSS Readers".)

Producing an RSS feed is very simple and hundreds of thousands of websites now provide this feature, including major organisations like the BBC, Yahoo!, Reuters, as well as many weblogs.

"The data from the 2018/19 survey is still in heavy use here, the physical activity related findings were pivotal in changing the relevant strategy recently to target less active groups like girls towards the end of secondary school, and I’ve three fairly hefty jobs on the to-do list that will use the data with other sources to identify target schools for mental health and physical activity projects, and another looking at community safety. I call it the gift that keeps giving and that certainly seems to be the case!"

"The (named) Children and Young People's Partnership has benefitted from the results of the SHEU survey locally for many years now, and we should like to continue to do so in future."

"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." OFSTED 1998

"You and the team have the evidence to show how young people's behaviour has or hasn't changed over time."

We were all very impressed with the spreadsheet and can see that an incredible amount of work has gone into creating this!

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.

"Brilliant - thank you Angela. As always you and your team are so proficient at getting our requests dealt with so promptly - it is a real pleasure to work with such a great organisation."

Health Improvement Adviser

I would just like to say thank you very much to Angela, yourself and all of the SHEU team for making the [survey] so successful. The survey has been well received and we are using data in new ways to help support work on local Public Health priorities.
