A research project investigating sleep patterns and learning is being featured on BBC TV news.

The research which will be piloted in 16 schools before rolling out to 100 schools in 2017 - will help them find out whether an education programme, explaining the importance of sleep and the risk of sleep deprivation, improves educational performance and overall health and well-being.

Teenagers from Northumberland Church of England Academy were due to describe their experience as part of BBC News at Six on BBC One Thursday, 10 March.

The research is being carried out by Oxford University and is funded by the Wellcome Trust and the Education Endowment Foundation, is examining sleep patterns.
