Following Britain’s successful hosting of the Olympic Games and record breaking medal tally the Smith Institute decided to undertake an online survey of people currently involved in school sports.
The survey forms part of an ongoing programme of work on sport in schools, including a report of policy perspectives to be published later in the year. The survey was initially prompted by the abolition of the School Sport Survey and is intended to provide an assessment of the impact of the lifting of ring-fenced funding for School Sport Partnerships.
The survey aims to: understand how those teaching sport feel about recent changes to school sports; and what impact they think the changes are, and will have, on sport participation levels and School Sport Partnerships.
The online survey took place between March and April 2013 and covered over 1,000 respondents, including primary and secondary school teachers, School Games Organisers, and School Sport Partnerships staff.
