Description/Abstract

This paper presents data from a 1993 self-completion questionnaire survey of primary schools in Wales on the organisation and provision of health education teaching, the implementation of health-related policies and the involvement of outside agencies and professionals in the planning and delivery of health promotion. The results from the 308 schools (62 per cent) which returned questionnaires show a widespread commitment to, and a sound base for the further expansion of, health promotion activity. It is recommended that greater attention should be given to the continuing education of primary school teachers in health promotion, the develop ment of policies on smoking, nutrition and sex education and the planned integration of community resources into school health promotion programmes.
