Schools Active Lives image

Active Essex is working with schools across Greater Essex to roll out the new Active Lives: Children and Young People survey. This will be a world-leading approach to gathering data on how children engage with sport and physical activity. This will give anyone working with children aged 5-16 key insight to help understand children’s attitudes and behaviours around sport and activity.

85 Schools have been randomly selected by Sport England to undertake the survey during the Winter term 2019-2020.  Look out for our flyers, emails and social media for more information – if your school is one of those chosen, make sure you don’t miss out!

For a full list of the schools selected please see the document below.

Winter term selected schools

Once a school has reached the minimum number of responses required, Sport England will notify ESPO that the school is eligible for its incentive. The school will then be contacted by ESPO regarding their incentive.

ESPO will contact eligible schools via email and post. They will send schools a covering letter which includes the number of credits the school has received as well as both an electronic and hard copy of the incentive catalogue along with an order form.

Schools then complete the order form and either email or fax it directly to ESPO who will process and fulfil the order. Any queries will be handled directly by ESPO.

Each school completing the required number of responses will receive a bespoke evaluation report the following term.  This is a great opportunity to prove to OFSTED that you are ‘engaging you’re your stakeholders in terms of health, wellbeing and physical activity’.  Insight gained from these responses can be used to evidence need and build cases for the requirement of continued or additional funding.
