Dear parents and carers

The survey is for students from years 5 to 12 (or equivalent) and will take 5 to 10 minutes to complete. It is voluntary and no identifying information will be collected. You and your child will be asked to provide consent at the start of the survey. Please read the information sheet provided and discuss the survey with your child. By following the survey link below you will find everything you need for your child to take part. If you are happy for your child to participate, please complete the survey as soon as possible.

Your child is invited to take part in an online survey about how supported they feel to be physically active at school. Synergistiq, an independent research company, is collecting this information as part of an evaluation of the Active Schools initiative funded by the Department of Education. The Active Schools initiative supports schools to promote physical activity and provide more opportunities for students to be active during the school day.

Feedback from students is important to make sure programs like these can best support students to be active and learn well.
