School Policies and Practices to Improve Health and Prevent Obesity: National Secondary School Survey Results (Volume 6) This new report, released in October of 2015, examines the latest data on secondary school policies and practices relevant to nutrition, physical activity and obesity prevention. Skovde's high-impact research also extends far beyond the laboratory, where the school collaborates with Life Science companies, public organisations and other universities to strengthen its research. Through these partnerships, the school has access to specific expertise, highly advanced laboratories and equipment, as well as PhD studies. Research has clearly demonstrated that children who come to school with weak language and communication skills are more likely to struggle by Year 2 (Whiteside, Gooch & Norbury, 2016).
Application tiers. Research applications are classified and processed in one of two tiers, depending on the nature and scale of the proposed research: Tier One comprises lower risk research. The YST research is based on responses from teachers at 487 English secondary schools.
