Local participation in the Active Lives Survey (ALS) for Children and Young People

During the pandemic, it is important for us to capture pupil voice, to understand the specific behaviours and attitudes of children and young people towards physical activity in BCP and the wider Dorset.

How has lock down affected the ability of your children and young people to retain a positive relationship with being physical activity? How has this affected their attainment, wellbeing and resilience? What are your children doing at home and in school? Are you worried about their physical, social and emotional wellbeing?

The survey provides a means to ask how we can support our children better.

Thank you to Gillingham School, Winton Academy, Queen Elizabeth School and The Bourne Academy for taking part in the autumn term. These schools will all receive full reports from Sport England in April 2021. Thanks also to Twynham School for agreeing to participate in the survey this spring. Their report will be available in July 2021.

To view the list of schools that have been selected to take part in 2020-21, please click here.

Opt in schools this spring term include Arbour House School, Canford Heath Junior School and every school in the Twynham Learning Partnership – thank you all for choosing to survey your CYP this term.

Every school in BCP and Dorset is welcome to 'opt in' to the survey, in the term of their choice. If your school is keen to participate in the survey, simply contact Annie Hargreaves in Active Dorset to register your interest: ahargreaves@activedorset.org
