Cambridgeshire and Peterborough School Games  – Youth Insight

Supporting children and young people to lead healthy, active and resilient lives to help them become healthy, active and resilient adults has never been more important. PE, School Sport and Physical Activity is therefore a powerful tool to achieve this.

In order to ensure that the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough School Games offer is relevant, inclusive and reflects the interests of a wide student base, there is the request for schools to provide the opportunity  for as many pupils as possible to complete this online survey which should take approximately 4 minutes to complete.

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough School Games – Youth Insight Survey   

All returns will remain anonymous except for the name of the school which the participating students attend.

The survey can also be copied and used internally by schools that are wanting to evaluate their own PE and extra-curricular provision in an attempt to inspire and motivate all young people to participate in physical activity both within and beyond the school day.

A number of schools have already chosen to pursue a “student voice” activity as a means of re-modelling their provision to ensure it is accessible and encourages an enjoyment of physical activity regardless of ability. It would be ideal if as many schools as possible could do the same and help build the momentum for providing positive physical activity experiences shaped by the students themselves.

To find out more about the support available locally to schools to help engage young people in sport and physical activity  in order to make a meaningful impact on their lives visit:

Can you help shape sport and physical activity for young people?

What is the Active Lives Survey?

We want all children and young people regardless of their age, background and ability level to be able to take part in and enjoy sport and physical activity.

The Active Lives Survey run by Sport England provides really useful information for anyone working with children and young people aged 5-16  to help understand their attitudes and behaviours to sport and activity. Subsequently it provides schools with a valuable insight into how well they are engaging their students in sport and physical activity.

The survey is supported nationally by the Department for Education, the Department for Health and Social Care and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.  Locally the survey is endorsed by the Local Authority PE Advisor, School Games Organisers, Public Health and Healthy Schools.

In Cambridge and Peterborough…

  • 45.3% of our county’s children and young people (years 1-11) are currently meeting the recommended level of activity (taking part in sport and physical activity for an average of 60 minutes or more a day)
  • 31.6% (years 1-11) still do less than the average of 30 minutes a day and 54.7% are not active enough to benefit their health
  • 37% of children (years 5-11) volunteer in some capacity to support sport and physical activity

How does the survey work?

  • Each term schools are randomly selected by Sport England to take part in the Active Lives survey. These schools are contacted in turn by Living Sport.
  • Alternatively schools can volunteer to take part by contacting Living Sport: [email protected]
  • Schools take part by choosing a minimum of 3 classes across 3 different year groups to complete the student survey which takes less than 20 minutes to complete.
  • 1 teacher also needs to complete a survey which takes around 10 minutes.
  • Each participating school is provided with everything it needs including templates for letters to parents, information sheets for teachers and students and technical guidance from Living Sport.

A summary of the process can be found here:

What are the benefits to schools?

  • Each school that takes part is given a bespoke report summarising its own results from the survey (if at least 30 students complete the questionnaire). This report covers measures of the student’s activity levels, physical literacy, swimming proficiency, wellbeing, self-efficacy and levels of social trust.
  • Participation in The Active Lives Survey provides access to The Healthy Schools Rating Scheme which comprises of an on-line teacher survey, this is based on four key areas of assessment: Food Education, School Food Standards, Physical Education and Active Travel. The responses given are calculated to determine a rating – bronze, silver, gold. The rating will remain confidential to the school/DfE although schools can choose to notify Ofsted about the rating achieved and promote their participation in the scheme as evidence of their provision to pupils. Where relevant, Ofsted inspectors may wish to consider the scheme as evidence when reaching the judgement on “personal development.”
  • Completion of the combined Active Lives Survey and Healthy Schools Rating Scheme can be cross referenced to the nutrition and physical activity standards for the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Healthy Schools Award. This can help accelerate the school’s progress to achieving Healthy Schools status and being granted use of the local authority Healthy Schools logo. A plaque is also awarded in acknowledgement of the achievement and provides good evidence of the schools commitment to Health Education.
  • Schools can also choose sports or well-being equipment and resources worth at least £100  as a token of thanks for their participation.
  • Ongoing support will be provided by the organisations comprising the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough PE and School Sport Strategy Group.
