Covering all aspects of health and wellbeing 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, and there are lots of:


- photocopiable resources

- lesson plans

- case studies of good practice

- useful forms, which can be adapted to suit your setting.


This book is full of practical guidance on all aspects of PSHE, including dealing with bullying and family disharmony, and how to encourage good hygiene.


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.


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.
