What is the Active Lives Children and Young People Survey?

Active Lives Children and Young People Survey is run by Sport England developed with the Department for Education, the Department of Health and Social Care and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport. It provides key data on how children engage with sport and physical activity.

Benefits of taking part:

  • Bespoke School Report: covers children’s activity levels, physical literacy, swimming proficiency, wellbeing, self-efficacy and levels of social trust
  • Equipment credits: to the value of around £100, to spend on a range of sports, wellbeing and health eating equipment or materials
  • Every response counts: each Yr 1 and Yr 2 parent survey response is worth an extra £10 credit. Plus, Active Kent & Medway prize draw to the value of £250 for Secondary Schools.
  • Comparison data: on the bespoke school report will show how your current results compare with your previous results on some key measures.
