There is a political and practical need to develop appropriate indicators for health promoting schools. As key stakeholders in education, students have the right to be fully engaged in this process. This research proposed a process for engaging with students to develop school level indicators of health; a total of 164 students generated and categorised indeicators and developed schematic representations of their analyses.
