Background: Eating disorders (ED) have a peak rate of onset in school-aged children. Little is known about
teachers’ experiences of ED.

Method: A total of 826 school staff completed an online questionnaire exploring
their Eating Disorder experiences. Responses were analysed using content analysis principles.

Results: 74 per
cent of respondents’ schools had received no training on ED, 40% did not know how to follow up
pupils’ Eating Disorder concerns and 89% of respondents felt uncomfortable teaching pupils about ED.

Conclusions: School staff feel ill-equipped to support ED. Training in the recognition, support and teaching of
ED would be welcomed and could improve outcomes for young people.
