This study was commissioned by the SPHE management committee to examine the contribution of SPHE to the experience of Junior Cycle students and to the Junior Cycle curriculum. Twelve schools were considered as separate units in order to examine the relationship between the various factors that might have an effect on SPHE within schools. The modified case study approach employed in this study used mixed methodologies, including interviews, questionnaires and participatory methods of data collection. These methods elicited a rich variety of opinions from students, teachers, parents and SPHE Support Service staff on their perceptions of SPHE at present and their aspirations for its future.
