Healthy lives for young people

Brook quality

Brook Quality is specifically designed to help schools implement mandatory RSE – and to do so as part of a whole school approach.

It provides a comprehensive self-assessment framework that sets out the key areas that leaders and teachers will need to consider to provide young people with the best RSE and best experience of life within the school community.


The standards of Brook Quality have been set in order to:

  • Provide a clear structure to recognise and develop a quality whole school approach
  • Highlight strengths, gaps and areas for improvement
  • Achieve lasting improvements to practice and management through engagement of key stakeholders
  • Improve individual and organisational confidence in the delivery and leadership of a whole school approach
  • Evidence the quality of services being delivered to young people
  • Involve stakeholders, including young people and parents, in the process of quality provision
  • Provide a nationally recognised award for those demonstrating a quality whole school approach

FREE REFERENCE AND PLANNING DOCUMENT

We provide a free-to-use toolkit for all staff that links to many other Brook resources such as information, advice, guidance, leaflets and accredited online learning. It will help you to identify training needs and recommend the key policies, procedures and practices that will support a whole school approach. All of this is in line with the Department for Education’s latest guidance.


EXTERNAL VALIDATION AND NATIONAL ACCREDITATION

Brook Quality also provides schools the opportunity for external validation and national accreditation through Brook, a sector leader in RSE. As part of this, schools receive a comprehensive assessment of their practice, policies and procedures and gain detailed feedback on their strengths and further areas for development.

WHAT IS A WHOLE SCHOOL APPROACH?

A whole school approach involves all parts of the school working together to make wellbeing and mental and sexual health fundamental to its culture, values and mission. It relies on the cooperation of governors, senior leaders, teachers and all school staff, as well as parents, carers and the wider community.

At Brook we firmly believe that preparing for RSE is not just a case of adjusting the curriculum. It requires an alignment of policy, people and practice: the school’s pastoral policies, the staff’s knowledge of and attitude towards sexual health and wellbeing, and the learning provision for students.
