Improvements being made in the teaching of personal, social, health and economic education
Most schools are equipping children and young people with the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and skills to live healthily, safely, productively and responsibly, a report published by Ofsted today has found.
The report Personal, social, health and economic education in schools shows provision for personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE) was good or outstanding in more than three quarters of the 165 maintained schools visited across England.
However, in just under one in four of the schools visited, the quality of teaching was variable and teachers’ subject knowledge and expertise were not good enough. The report found that the teaching of PSHE education is most effective when there are discrete, regularly taught lessons supplemented by activities across other subjects.
