Smoke Free School Survey

Forrester High School is working with NHS Lothian towards becoming a smoke-free school.  As part of this work we will be creating and implementing a new smoke-free policy at Forrester High School.

We are gathering feedback from everyone involved in the school community to have their say on what is included in the smoke-free school policy including: pupils, staff and parents/guardians.

With that in mind, we ask that you answer the questions in our short survey  – see link below.  The survey is confidential and should take no more than 5 minutes to complete.

Thank you for your support.
