Standards can be defined as what a health promotion school is aiming for. Indicators are selected measures that describe the quality of the standard. Often there is more than one indicator for a specific standard. In 2019, SHE published the Standards and Indicators for Health promoting schools in Europe. Global guidelines for health-promoting schools are also being developed by the WHO. SHE’s European standards and indicators will be revised in 2021 after piloting them in some of our member countries.
