Several primary and secondary schools in Swindon completed the Swindon PSHE Leads Survey in January and February 2024. The results with recommendations can be downloaded here

The results have given us an excellent insight into the provision of PSHE across Swindon and the training needs around delivering PSHE within schools. Recommendations include:

  • SEND specific speakers – develop a list of appropriate speakers? Further consider the gaps in this area.
  • Which speakers are less easy to access since the pandemic?
  • Could more governors take on a PSHE Lead? What are the barriers to making this happen? What would the benefits be?
  • Provide local level data to schools to help inform PSHE.
  • Swindon Healthy Schools to provide a template letter to parents and carers who wish to withdraw their child from sex education lessons and a template PSHE/RSHE policy.
  • Swindon Healthy Schools to proactively link schools to any visitors that would be appropriate. E.g., a respondent said, “…for KS1 would be good ie. Road safety training.”
  • Swindon Healthy Schools to provide information about how to address the training gaps highlighted for primary and secondary schools and invite appropriate trainers/speakers to PSHE Lead Network meeting where possible.
