Look at family of schools SHRN data. Look at 2020 data since becoming a coeducation school. Look at patterns in different year groups. Youth Consultation Event 21st March 2019 Barry Memo The aim of the youth consultation event was to dig deeper into the Local Authority level SHRN findings through a topic focus, encourage students and staff to become familiar with their own school reports and develop realistic action plans. Information gained during the day from students, school staff, and stakeholders would be used to inform a Local Authority level response. All Vale secondary schools who are part of the School Health Research Network

were invited to attend. 5 out of 8 Vale secondary schools accepted the offer, with the remaining 3 having other clashing commitments on the day of the event. 49 pupils and 5 accompanying staff attended. A range of stakeholders representing each of the main SHRN topic areas were invited to support the event by developing and leading consultation workshops.
