September 2007 | 176 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Covering all aspects of health and well being including physical, emotional and social health, this book will help schools to encourage children to make positive life choices. It links directly to Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) and the National Healthy Schools Standard.

Drawing directly from her experience as a school nurse and independent nurse consultant, Emma Croghan provides a clear framework for teachers, school nurses and education professionals to work together.

Packed with activities and photocopiable resources, including examples of good practice, this book offers practical guidance in all areas of PSHE, from dealing with bullying and family disharmony, to advice on hygiene and risk assessment.

Headteachers, class teachers, School Nurses and PSHE Co-ordinators wishing to attain the National Healthy Schools Standard will find this book essential reading.

Practical guide useful in practice but not sufficiently theoretical for underpinning theory.

Excellent resource to help teach the students about how they can educate the children in their care. A good practical resource.

Very useful book. Hard to get good quality in depth health promotion texts specifically aimed at teachers. This book is easy to read yet holds enough theory to be useful in the module I teach which looks at health promotion in the public sector.
