Health and Physical Activity

Research in this theme takes an interdisciplinary approach to understanding young people’s health and physical activity behaviours within and beyond the school curriculum. We are interested in the multidimensional nature of health and explore how the practices and curriculum within schools influence children’s understanding of health and the effect this has on their behaviour, learning and achievement.
