CORE data
At various time points across the  three year project, we ask students (whose parents have provided informed consent) how they feel about school, their health, their involvement in extra-curricular activities and their friendships and relationships in and out of school. 
We ask students to dribble a small sample of saliva into a tube to measure cortisol, a stress hormone found in saliva. This is common practice in health surveys and is not used for any other purpose. 
All information collected is strictly anonymous and confidential.  Students do not put their names on anything.  Results given back to the school are compiled so that it is impossible to identify any one child’s response.
