Who are the Environment Agency? 

The Environment Agency works to protect and improve the environment. They help people and wildlife adapt to climate change and reduce its impact, including flooding, drought, sea level rise and coastal erosion. They improve the quality of our water, land and air by tackling pollution, and work with businesses to help them comply with environmental regulations. A healthy and diverse environment enhances people’s lives and contributes to economic growth. The Environment Agency work as part of the Defra group (Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs), with the rest of government, local councils, businesses, civil society groups and local communities to create a better place for people and wildlife.

PSHE education & the PSHE Association

Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education is the school curriculum subject dedicated to supporting children’s physical and mental health, relationships, careers and economic wellbeing.

We’re a membership association and charity, supporting a national network of 50,000 teachers and schools to teach it well. We offer guidance, training, teaching resources and advice.

Our mission is to raise the status, quality and impact of PSHE education so that all children and young people benefit. And we’ve enjoyed success in this area – our campaigning helped make Relationships Education, RSE and Health Education (RSHE) compulsory in September 2020.

Our Subject Specialist team create all of our resources, training and guidance. This includes the Programme of Study for PSHE Education, which most schools use to structure PSHE education.
