Advisory Group

SHEU has been delighted to receive the support, advice, encouragement and co-operation of an Advisory Group since the start of its current incarnation in 1998.

We would also like to acknowledge the support of past advisers of SHEUAG since retired, the members of HEC SHEU Steering Committee chaired by Jessie Leighton, and many other friends and colleagues over the years.

Comments about SHEU

"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."

"We're very happy to commission another survey from you. Our colleagues in School Improvement are dead keen to work with us on this. During our last LA Inspection, we were flagged from our Tellus data as having a bullying problem. We could demonstrate with our SHEU data - which had a much better sample size and coverage of the authority - that we did not have the problem they suggested. The Inspectors went away happy and we are definitely surveying again with SHEU."

"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."

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.

I just wanted to write and tell you how much I enjoyed your talk at last week's conference.
