Scottish Exchange of Data: healthy living survey


The Healthy Living Survey usually gathers information on the provision of school meals and some basic information on the provision of PE in schools within Local Authorities.   The information is contained in publications produced annually. 


Due to the Covid-19 related disruption to schools, however, a decision was made in February to not collect data on Free School Meal registration and school meal uptake data for 2021. As communicated in February, we will still collect data on the Physical Education provision commitment.  Updated guidance which outlines the requirements for this PE commitment data collection is attached below.
