Generally, it's recommended you report this to your school nurse who will advise you on what to do next. If your school doesn't have a nurse, speak to your headteacher instead.
Tackling the subject of eating and exercise habits with year 6 students can be tricky, but it's never too late to make healthy lifestyle changes. Use this year to help older kids build on the habits they need for secondary school and for life.
Continue to develop healthy habits in kids throughout their time at school, by engaging teaching staff, parents and the community.
The school nursing team encourage the whole school to eat healthily and move more as well as supporting parents. Use these resources to help school staff create a healthy school culture, explain measuring day to students and make sure children learn about healthy lifestyles after they've been weighed and measured.
