Lead investigator
Dr. Beki Langford, University of Bristol (Co-Investigator: Dr. Jonny Currie)
Background

Our recent Cochrane review into the World Health Organization’s Health Promoting Schools framework identified both an emphasis on obesity-related interventions and lack of information on how health interventions can affect academic achievement. This follow-up qualitative study was conducted to identify what teachers felt were the most pressing health issues for their students and explore if and how these affected student learning.

Aims & objectives
Qualitative investigation with secondary school teaching staff to: Identify health and well-being issues affecting students; Explore how these health and well-being issues affect student learning; Understand how health and well-being are promoted in schools; Identify health and well-being issues affecting teaching staff.
