Active Lives Children and Young People’s Survey: Have your say
The Active Lives Children and Young People Survey measures engagement and attitudes to sport and physical activity within children and young people.
Each term, a number of schools across Norfolk are chosen to participate in the Active Lives Survey, with a mix of years 1-11 invited to take part. Schools who take part will receive a report of their findings and £100 worth of sports equipment.
Sport England produces an annual report showing the results of the Active Lives Children and Young People’s survey using the data collected. This provides useful insight into the current levels of physical activity across the country, as well as in Norfolk.
By taking part, you could help shape future decisions surrounding physical activity in schools. You can find out whether your child’s school has been chosen to participate this term below.
