This is a compendium of three short, exploratory reports:
Social mixing, community cohesion and social isolation: an exploratory analysis of friendship networks in two inner London secondary schools
Ruth Lupton, Emma Salter, Natalie Heath, Peter Stevens and Tamjid Mujtaba
Well-being and perceptions of school: an analysis of psychological well-being in two inner London secondary schools
Rodie Akerman, Emma Salter, Leslie Morrison Gutman and Ruth Lupton
Multi-agency working in secondary schools: a case study of implementation in practice
Peter Stevens, Ruth Lupton and Tashweka Anderson
These reports draw on further analyses of data collected for Research Report 24, The development and impact of young peoplesí social capital in secondary schools. The first two reports are quite closely linked, focusing on the students themselves and the relationships between different elements of social capital, psycho-social resources and behaviour, studentsí background characteristics and features of the school. The third examines multi-agency working as a means of supporting students in these schools who have particular needs, and explores the experiences of school staff and other professionals in applying this approach. However, all three reports have a common focus on studentsí well-being and those aspects of school life that go beyond teaching and learning.
