Staffordshire Partners PHSE digest

This edition sees the launch of the PHSE Impact Report for Year 2 of the service, covering December 2022 to December 2023. It’s great to see how far the service has come in two short years and what has been achieved, including an increase in the engagement with partners and our schools. Please take time to read the full report so you can find out what we’ve been up to, apart from sending you the PSHE Digest, to support advocating for PSHE education across Staffordshire.  PHSE have also created an at-a-glance two-page report to share with colleagues, to highlight the service to them .This gives the headlines of our key achievements. More information about this is on page 2 of the Digest.

If you have any local updates you would like to share with PHSE e.g. change of referral process, new telephone number, launch of new service, strategy or report the next deadline is 28th February for publication on 1st March. Contact Natalie McGrath
