National School Survey
Sport England's new survey – Active Lives Children and Young People – provides a world-leading approach to gathering data on how children engage with sport and physical activity. It gives anyone working with children aged 5-16 key insight to help understand children's attitudes and behaviours around sport and activity.
HOW DOES THE SURVEY WORK?
Schools are randomly selected to take part, CSW Sport will contact them to let them know they have been selected. One class in up to three different year groups are asked to fill out the questionnaires.
WHAT DOES THE QUESTIONNAIRE INVOLVE?
The questionnaires have been designed to be simple and enjoyable for pupils to complete and are tailored to different age groups and takes around 20 minutes to fill in.
Each school that takes part will be given a bespoke report summarising their own results from the survey
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS TO SCHOOLS?
Each school that takes part is given a bespoke report summarising their own results from the survey (if at least 30 pupils complete the questionnaire). This report covers measures of children’s activity levels, physical literacy, swimming proficiency, wellbeing, self-efficacy and levels of social trust.
The reports give staff evidence and insight into how their school is performing in terms of engaging its pupils in sport and physical activity. These are not published or used to compare schools, but are purely designed for the benefit of the individual school.
VOLUNTARILY TAKE PART
If you not selected randomly as a school to take part, your school can still complete the survey by opting in. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
