PSHE Review announced by Government – have your say

July 28, 2011

You may have noticed that last week Campaign for Body Confidence co-founder Jo Swinson MP made the case in Parliament for body image education in schools being tied into Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) classes, to give children the confidence to accept their bodies as they are (see the full text here).

 The Government has just announced a review of PSHE, which the Campaign for Body Confidence will be responding to and encouraging the Government to use PSHE lessons as a vehicle for delivering body image education. The review will report to the Secretary of State for Education, and look at the quality of PSHE teaching in schools as well as its content.

The Department for Education is welcoming responses from teachers, parents, pupils and other interested parties. You can have your say by 30th November 2011 – email PSHEEducation.Review@education.gsi.gov.uk to let the government know your views on the content and quality of teaching of PSHE.

    the first link in this article is broken. The link posted, PSHEEducation.Review@education.gsi.gov.uk , goes no where and does absolutely nothing. How are we supposed to support this cause, if we cannot find it?
