Survey day

The Healthy Living survey week is the week beginning 19 February 2024. You should select a day within this week that is most representative of a normal day in the school. You should avoid days where large groups of pupils are out of the school or days when you know there is unusually high or low demand for lunches. If there is not a ‘typical’ day within the survey week you should select a day as close as possible to the survey week.
