Latest News: Surveys of Primary, Secondary and Independent schools were completed in 2017 and a separate survey of pupils in Years 5, 8 and 10 completed in late 2017-18. We aimed to find out what all schools are doing regardless of whether they have breaktimes, playgrounds or not. The surveys provide a snapshot of everyday life in schools across the country as well as views on arrangements, pupil behaviour and plans for the future. A Full Report | Executive Summary | Research Briefing | and Blog on the research and findings are available.
