A healthy education

4 pupils in a school gym with a teacher standing in the middle. One is climbing a rope, one skipping one climbing bars and one using a hula hoop.

Lifelong wellbeing theme

What’s on offer?

 A stall which will bring attention to and promote discussion of the various factors that influence children's educational outcomes and how we research those using data linkage. With some tasks like guessing the prevalence of different chronic conditions and whether there are associations with different types of educational outcomes and Physically sorting early life factors into positive or negative influences (using foam bricks) or matching early life factors to educational outcomes (using cards)

What’s it about?

The determinants of health extend beyond just the health sector and include a range of social and environmental determinants. Education is one determinant which can impact health directly and indirectly. Educating people on healthcare and healthy lifestyles can improve their health outcomes. However, improvements in educational attainment can indirectly impact a person’s future health, well-being and quality of life. The relationship between education and health is bidirectional since many factors, including poor health, can initially impact a child’s educational outcomes. Improving our understanding of the relationships between health and education is an important area of public health, and cross-sectoral record linkage provides an invaluable resource for epidemiological research.
