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.

Comments about SHEU

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.

"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

Many thanks to you and your team for turning this around so quickly.
We really appreciate it, and also your extra support with the administration this time.

 “The (SHEU survey) helped us to prioritise where we needed to be in terms of PSHE education. We delivered assemblies based on the evidence as well as curriculum development, and dealt with whole school issues – particularly in regard to pastoral care. The answers received to the question on the survey “Who are you most likely to approach if you needed help” worried staff as “teacher” was not a popular answer. Subsequently the staff asked themselves why this had happened and what needed to be done to address the issue. There was more emphasis on wider aspects of PSHE education delivery, which needed more attention.

To summarise, the (SHEU survey) allows the PSHE department to assess the impact of teaching and learning and modify future lessons accordingly. It allows our school to look at whole school issues such as the extent to which the pastoral care system is meeting the needs of our pupils. It helps us to do need analysis of our pupils. It helps to provide important evidence for SEF / the extent to which we are meeting wellbeing indicators / National Healthy School standards.”  

Secondary School Head

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

Health Improvement Specialist

"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

"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."
