PSHE education supports academic success, says major evidence review - Dec 2017

'Very strong evidence’ that PSHE (personal, social, health and economic) learning has a positive impact on academic attainment, according to independent Pro Bono Economics review.

Through its proven impact on physical and mental health, levels of bullying and general behaviour, PSHE education removes barriers to learning and develops skills that help young people succeed

 

PSHE Association urges Government to follow through with proposals to make PSHE statutory, in line with other subjects, to ensure all pupils benefit.
