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

"You have made a fantastic contribution to children’s health education and promotion. I am personally grateful to you for helping to kickstart my research career." Prof. Neil Armstrong tribute to John Balding, presented at his retirement lunch, May 2005

Prof Neil Armstrong

"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

"We would like to take part in the next ECM survey. We have found the data produced invaluable for supporting evidence in our SEF etc."

School Vice Principal

"We were talking about (the SHEU survey) data at our recent NSCoPSE Conference, for PSHE advisers and consultants. It would be really helpful if some of this powerful data and the trends could be shared in the consultation around the PSHE Review. Colleagues shared their very positive experiences of (the SHEU survey). It provides excellent evidence of behaviour change for children and young people and of the impact of PSHE and wider interventions."

Personal and Social Development Consultant

"Please send an additional copy of our report - it is the most requested and borrowed item in the whole library." Health Promotion Unit

Any comments on specific survey questions that may have caused difficulty?
Pupils at our primary school found the questionnaire very easy to understand and most of them completed the questions in less than 45min.

Teacher

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.

Headteacher

At the time, the results were very useful and the feedback report very useful and insightful. Significant changes will occur in our schools health and wellbeing provision next year and conducting another survey will certainly help me to ensure I am planning effectively for the needs of our pupils.

Head of Health and Wellbeing

(Our) Senior team were very enthused with the rich source of data provided within the reports (and thought that the analyses including within the appendices section of the main reports were really interesting).

Health Improvement Specialist (Children, Schools and Families)

My school took part in the Health Survey last year and found it incredibly beneficial. It has been an invaluable tool for planning our PSHE/well being provision and actioning our school development plan.
