Using the process developed for SW Health Schools Plus, The Targeted Intervention Programme follows the principles of a ‘health behaviour change’ model where interventions are driven by school and local area data. Settings measure the impact of their health-related activities as a means of informing ‘good practice’, marking success and reviewing progress.
The first phase of undertaking the Targeted Intervention Programme is to complete the Foundation Level (Biennial Health Audit). In addition, a needs analysis should be undertaken: for schools and colleges it is recommended that they best way to achieve this is to participate in the biennial Somerset Children and Young People Health and Wellbeing Survey. Alternatively, data relating to your school/college or setting can be used.
