Preparing for the health related behaviour survey (HRBS) 2017

04 Sep 2017

Schools in Ealing are due to take part in the 2017 HRBS, a series of questions for children and young people to complete about their health and well-being.

The information below explains the process your school needs to follow in order to undertake the survey and get your results. Please read and pass the information to the person co-ordinating the survey in your school.


Pupils from years 4, 6, 8 and 10. In Infant schools or expanding schools pupils in year 2 will be completing the survey.


The survey will be taken online.


The survey should ideally take place between the 25 September and 13 October 2017 and not on a Monday. The survey will take approximately one hour to complete.

What is in it for you?

The survey results will be returned to you within approximately two weeks of submission. For each question you will receive results separated by year group and sex. You will receive the raw data initially followed by a detailed report that shows your data alongside the Ealing average as compared to your 2015 results. You will also receive a colour coded chart highlighting the key areas of success and areas for development.
