One of the world’s biggest surveys of young people, the 2022 School Sport Survey, is underway!

Children and young people across Wales are being invited to share their views in a national survey to help shape the future of sport in Wales.

The 2022 School Sport Survey, which Beaufort are working in partnership with Snap Surveys and Sport Wales to deliver, opened on Monday 28 March and is aimed at pupils aged 7 to 16 (school years 3 to 11).

Not only will the School Sport Survey paint a picture of which sports and activities children are currently taking part in both inside and outside of school, and how often, it will also uncover which sports and activities they’d like to have the opportunity to enjoy more of.

The survey will also discover valuable insight about the barriers that prevent young people from taking part in sport.

This is the fifth time since 2011 that Sport Wales has conducted the survey into the activity habits of young people. The last survey, in 2018, gathered the views of more than 120,000 children from over 1,000 schools.

All schools in Wales will receive an email containing their own unique link to the online survey and have until Friday 22 July to take part. The results of the survey will be published in the autumn.

Schools are also advised to check what they need to do in order to qualify for their own individual School Sport Survey Report. This report can then be used by the school to tailor their sport and wellbeing activities to better suit their pupils’ needs.
