A Sad Week

It's been a sad week as many of our friends and colleagues lost their jobs in local authorities at the end of March. 

The energy and momentum of the Healthy Schools programme was inspiring and we hope that the networks that have been created around the country and the lessons learned over the last ten years will be preserved.

ImageDevon is looking fabulous but we are struggling to run our usual service today (Monday20th).  In particular, we might not be able to answer the 'phone.  We will read email (some of us from home), and do what we can to respond promptly.

Homophobic bullying in schools - Stonewall study

In 2006, we were asked by Stonewall, the lesbian and gay lobbying organisation, to host an online survey about homophobic bullying.
Over 1145 young people from across the UK took part in the survey.
The key findings were:

"When you're through changing, you're through."

Adapting to change, nothing new here as SHEU prepare to meet the challenges of 2011.

Having navigated our way through the last 33 years of providing nationally recognised survey services I have found it helpful to take a very quick glance at the writings of the good and the great on the subject of 'change'...

The only difference between a rut and a grave is their dimensions - Ellen Glasgow

“We’re very happy..."

“We’re very happy to commission another survey from you. Our colleagues in School Improvement are dead keen to work with us on this” said a Local Authority Senior Adviser recently. "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.”

Budget cuts / Restricted budgets?

Budget cuts / Restricted budgets?

Some clients we are working with are starting to re-charge some or all of the survey costs to their schools.

After Tellus - what next?

The Government have decided to stop the delivery of the Tellus5 survey.
The Schools Health Education Unit (SHEU) continues to provide authorities with unique data about their school pupils as evidence-based practice remains high on their agenda.
SHEU is probably the oldest (established in 1977) survey service dedicated to collecting data about young people’s healthy lifestyles.
Client feedback enables us to adapt the content of our questionnaires to suit local requirements and schools can choose to use our PAPER based questionnaire or an ONLINE version.
