The Active Lives Survey for Children and Young People provides a world-leading approach to gathering data on how children engage with sport and physical activity. It’s designed to give anyone working with children aged 5-16 key insight to help understand children’s attitudes and behaviours around sport and physical activity.
Developed by Sport England in partnership with the Department for Education, Department of Health and Department Culture, Media and Sport. The data analysis is conducted by Ipsos MORI, global market and opinion research specialists. The questionnaires are designed to be simple and enjoyable for pupils to complete and are tailored to different age groups. For primary schools, the information may be used by Government departments to influence and sustain future PE and School Sport Premium funding.
Each term schools will be randomly selected to take part, with the aim of getting 100,000 children and young people in Years 1 to 11 from across the country to complete it each academic year.
