Who we are

Six cartoon children running around in PE clothes.We are an organisation called Active Kent & Medway which is part of Kent County Council. We help lots of organisations like sports clubs and schools to make it easier for everyone to play sport and be more active. We also help to organise the Kent School Games which your school might take part in.

How do we collect information from you?

A cartoon boy typing on a laptop.We have created the questions in the online survey your teacher has shown you. If you finish the survey then the answers you write will be sent to us to read and compare with the answers other young people have written.

How do we use your information?

Three children holding laptops with a shared thought bubble above them showing that they have had an idea together.We will take the answers you give us and compare them with the answers other young people have given us. This will help us to see if there is anything that young people in Kent agree on. There might be an activity that lots of young people want to take part in but can’t at the moment. Or there might be something that is stopping young people from playing sport and being active that we can help to change.

Two cartoon men holding folders with information in them. One of the men is passing a folder to the other.We will share what we find out with your schools and some other organisations which run activities for young people. The information will help them to understand what young people need and want, and make sure nobody is being left out. We will try our best to make it hard to know what each young person has said, but your teachers might be able to guess who has written some of the answers.

We will keep the answers to the surveys for two years.
