HC Deb 28 July 1997 vol 299 c66W
Mr. Martyn Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what assessment his Department has made of the teaching of(a) personal health care, (b) nutrition and (c) environmental awareness in Welsh schools; and if he will make a statement. [9849]

Mr. Hain

The office of Her Majesty's chief inspector of schools in Wales published on 17 June the results of a recent survey "Standards and Quality in Personal and Social Education (PSE)", which covers teaching on health education, healthy eating and the environment in secondary schools. A copy of the publication is in the Library of the House.

The White Paper "Building Excellent Schools Together", published on 8 July, announced a review of the PSE curriculum by ACAC—the Curriculum and Assessment Authority for Wales—as part of its review of the national curriculum for Wales.
