Guidance for governing boards

How to support and influence PSHE education

PSHE education plays a key role in safeguarding pupils and supporting their mental and physical health. This guidance from the National Governance Association (NGA) and the PSHE Association illustrates how governing boards can support and influence schools’ PSHE education provision.

The guidance highlights the crucial link between PSHE education and safeguarding in schools and the importance of meeting new statutory requirements to provide Relationships Education at key stages 1 and 2, Relationships and Sex Education at key stages 3 and 4, and Health Education across all key stages.

The guidance also outlines ways in which governing boards can raise the status of PSHE education and increase its impact. This includes having a clear vision, developing bespoke policies and investing resources in CPD, so that teachers can confidently communicate important messages about health and wellbeing, relationships, economic wellbeing and careers. Links are included to relevant resources along with examples of questions that governors and trustees might ask about PSHE education.
