PBE referenced in House of Commons Hansard

7 February 2018

Pro Bono Economics' report for the PSHE Association was mentioned in the House of Commons Hansard on the 6th of February 2018, in a debate on statutory PSHE education. Teresa Pearce, Labour MP for Erith and Thamesmead, stated "A report by Pro Bono Economics in 2017 found that the provision of high-quality PSHE has a positive impact on young people’s academic attainment. Moreover, a study of 200 social and emotional skills programmes, predominantly delivered through PSHE lessons, demonstrated an 11% improvement in young people’s academic achievement. Encouragingly, evidence also showed that PSHE can have a positive impact on life chances, as it was the academic performance of the most disadvantaged children that improved by the greatest amount as the result of receiving high-quality PSHE."

We are pleased to have supported the PSHE Association in advancing their aim for all pupils to recieve regular, high quality PSHE education.
