  2. School Sport Survey 2021 - The Consultation

The School Sport Survey gives children across Wales the opportunity to have their say on their participation in sport and how they feel about it. 

This gives us and the sector rich insight into participation levels, behaviours and attitudes and importantly, allows us to identify areas that need our attention. Our most recent survey in 2018 represented the voices of 120,00 schoolchildren from over 1,000 schools. 

Ahead of the planned School Sport Survey in 2021, we had planned to make a number of improvements to the survey, from its delivery, to the questions themselves, to the sharing and displaying of results. These proposed improvements are a result of the feedback already received from various stakeholders and in response to the emerging needs of the sector. 

In the summer of 2020, we held a stakeholder consultation, inviting feedback on the changes and other potential improvements which might be made to facilitate the best use of the insight. We heard from local authorities, people supporting the delivery of the survey, and national governing bodies and having analysed the results, we are really pleased to showcase the commitments we’ve made to developing the survey and what you can expect from the next iteration when it launches.

One of the key pieces of feedback and due to the evolving Covid-19 pandemic, we postponed the survey, and are working towards its launch in April 2022.

As we have been working through the proposed changes, we have also committed to publishing the results of any changes that haven’t been able to be made, and any further decisions which will be of interest to you as we move forward with the survey. These will be published in due course.

If you have any questions about the survey, or these reports, you can get in touch with us at [javascript protected email address].
