NCB on PSHE

Fergus Crow, Assistant Director, in the well-being department of NCB says:

“NCB welcomes Sir Alasdair Macdonald’s recommendations into how to make PSHE education statutory. For many years, NCB has called for improvements in PSHE education and children and young people have told us many times how optimistic they are about the potential of the subject only to be let down when it comes to their actual experiences in school.

In the schools of the 21st century we should expect that learning and well-being are seen as interdependent. A statutory basis for PSHE education in the National Curriculum means that all children and young people can expect that their learning in school should make a positive contribution to all aspects of their well-being as they grow towards adulthood.

NCB will be encouraging members, including members of Young NCB who have campaigned for statutory PSHE for the last two years, to contribute to the consultation process that follows”.
