Leicestershire survey of children and young people 2012-13

Our survey provides a unique insight into the lives of children and young people aged eight to 17 living in the county of Leicestershire. Almost 2,500 children and young people in eight primary schools and six secondary schools participated in the survey.
The aim of undertaking the survey is to identify the aspects of life where children in Leicestershire are doing well and those where they are not doing so well, in order to identify potential local priorities for improving well-being.
