Prepared for life, not just exams

NHS England

NHS England and NHS Improvement South West is one of the seven regional teams covering the counties of Bath, Wiltshire, West Bristol, Somerset, Gloucestershire, Cornwall and Isles of Scilly, Devon and Dorset. Their job is to ensure that people across the South West have access to high quality health and care services.

NHS England need to address some of the huge safeguarding concerns which have grown especially since the onset of the pandemic. They have provided two thirds of the capital costs for developing the 360 virtual reality Skill City along with a set of interactive safeguarding dilemmas for Year 6 to Year 9.

NHS England have also funded a full academic evaluation of the Phase 1 pilot, which is being delivered by ImpactEd. NHS CCGs in the south west region of England have provided expertise in the development of content, and Regional Head of Safeguarding Rosie Luce sits on our Stakeholder Panel.

“The aim and objectives of the programme seem to link well with supporting safeguarding young people across the South West. By young people working through scenarios that could be affecting their lives, it helps to improve their understanding of potential risks, possible consequences and hopefully, improve their decision making and ultimately, to enable them to make choices to keep safe and well.

Moving to a virtual world also appears to support many other local areas in their Key Stage 3 developments and specifically, across the South West.”

– Rosie Luce, Regional Safeguarding Lead (RSL) at NHS England (South West)
