This report looks at the contribution of education to pupils' health and well-being. It is based on visits to 18 schools selected because of their good practice in the context of health education. It is the first major Ofsted survey on the broader aspects of health and well-being since the introduction of the Every Child Matters agenda. The findings are intended to disseminate best practice and to help institutions improve this aspect of their work.

The report evaluates the strengths and weaknesses of history in primary and secondary schools. It does so at a time of changing contexts and lively debate on the future of the subject. The Every Child Matters agenda to maximise pupils' potential raises significant questions about what is taught and how. There is also much public and political interest in issues of citizenship, the understanding of British values and social cohesion. In reflecting on evidence from inspection, the report considers how history teaching might respond to these challenges.
