EXPLANATORY NOTE
This student was enrolled at birth in a national survey of the Health, Growth and Development of Children.

The survey boys and girls come from all types of home and are attending all types of college and school both independant and local authority. Only 10% have been lost and the value of this inquiry depends on our continuing to obtain information for every possible survey member.
All information given will be regarded as strictly confidential and there is no possibility that the name of any student, College or school will appear in any report.
THIS FORM SHOULD BE FILLED IN BY THE MEMBER OF STAFF WHO KNOWS THIS STUDENT BEST, IF NECESSARY IN CONSULTATION WITH THE OTHER MEMBERS OF THE STAFF.
HOW TO FILL IN THIS FORM
Wherever necessary please put a circle round the number opposite the answer that most nearly describes your views. If you feel that further comment is called for please do not hesitate to give it.

If the student has left please complete the section above 'FOR THOSE NO LONGER AT THIS COLLEGE' and all questions except 3,4,5 and 6 and return it immediately, together with the uncompleted student's questionnaire, to the Local Education Authority.
