Description - The Health Promoting School by Susan Denman

Under the Labour government there have been signs of a willingness to revive the 'pastoral' curriculum and to develop links between health and education. This book is based on empirical work carried out by the authors in England, and in researching the European Network of Health Promoting Schools (ENHPS). The authors consider health promotion in a broad sense, they incorporate personal and social education, environmental education, self-esteem and empowerment. The authors show how a range of professionals can be drawn in to work with the care, development and education of young people. There are clear advantages to both pupils, staff and school in this kind of approach. The Health Promoting School in Action provides instruction for teachers in how to achieve it.
