Schools are a key setting for health p romotion . The development of H ealth P romoting S chools (HPS) draws on the settings - based approach to h ealth p romotion and includes child participation as one of its basic values. T he psycho - social environment of the school is an important dimension for prom oting the health and wellbeing of children but has rarely been directly investigated empirically. Parental participation is important for strengthening and sustaining the concept of school health p romotion but little is written on the processes involved.
