Active Lives Survey for Children and Young People – data for schools

In September 2017 Sport England launched the new school-based ‘Active Lives Survey for Children and Young People’ to measure participation in sport and physical activity among children in school years 1 to 11. Replacing the Active People survey, Active Lives is the biggest of its kind and gathers data relating to pupil’s sporting behaviours and attitudes, swimming ability, wellbeing, volunteering, and even sports spectating. Completion of the survey provides participating schools with insightful data which can be used to demonstrate the impact of the Sport Premium and to underpin Ofsted reporting. Schools also receive a small amount of funding as a ‘thankyou’.

The Herts Sports Partnership has been tasked with administering the survey within Hertfordshire and, has recently been issued with the list of schools and year groups for the Spring 2019 term that we are required to work with. You can find out if your school is on the current list at or by contacting Shelley Woods on 01707 285887 or at
