Guernsey's Young People

Two decades of SHEU Health-Related Behaviour Surveys
The Schools Health Education Unit (SHEU) have been working with the colleagues from the Bailiwick of Guernsey for two decades now, and our survey work has accumulated a database of over 10,000 cases.  These have mostly been whole-population lifestyle surveys but some have been focussed on particular topics or groups.

Secondary Schools: Health Related Behaviour Questionnaire

Image   The Health Related Behaviour Questionnaire (HRBQ) was first developed in 1977 as an outcome of researches within the Department of Community Medicine at Nottingham University. Since then it has been used in thousands of school health surveys in secondary schools in the UK.

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.

School Self-Evaluation

OFSTED have a view that "Rigorous self-evaluation is at the heart of effective school improvement". The self-evaluation form (SEF) introduced alongside the Framework for the inspection of schools mirrors the evaluation schedule used by inspectors.

The SEF is used by inspectors before the inspection to help identify where they might need to focus their efforts.
