7th March 2003 at 00:00
School nurses are being brought into the heart of the policy agenda by being given new roles to audit schools' health needs and promote healthy lifestyles. The target is to ensure every school is a "health-promoting school" and new community school by 2007.

The revamped service follows interviews with 262 school nurses.
