We are supporting Sport England and their research partner Ipsos MORI to gather information about the amount and type of sport and physical activity undertaken by children and young people aged 5-16 years across Tyne & Wear. This work is an extension of the Active Lives Survey which initially gathered information from those aged 16+.
The results will give anyone working with children aged 5-16 key insight to help understand children’s attitudes and behaviours around sport and physical activity. They will also help to shape and influence local decision-making as well as inform government policy on the Primary PE and Sports Premium, Childhood Obesity Plan and other cross-departmental programmes.
Each school that takes part will be given a bespoke report summarising their own results from the survey (if at least 30 pupils complete the questionnaire).
The reports will give staff evidence and insight into how their school is performing in terms of engaging its pupils in sport and physical activity. These will NOT be published or used to compare schools, but are purely designed for the benefit of the individual school.
