This publication offers a framework to schools against which they can look at their school, assess health needs and begin a process of working towards better health for all members of the school community. The framework outlines the Health Promoting School (HPS) concept including its aims, core values and criteria. It briefly outlines the process of work involved in becoming a Health Promoting School. The framework is written for all members of the school community – students, staff and visitors. In particular, it has been developed to assist school leaders to support health promotion work within their school. The framework is also relevant for health personnel and others who may be engaging with schools and who are seeking an understanding of health promotion within the school setting.
