This report, summarises the activity levels of 5 to 16-year olds in England from September 2019 to July 20. The period covered includes the disruptive storms last February, which resulted in school closures and the cancellation of many outdoor activities, and the unprecedented disruption caused by the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

This report should be read in conjunction with Sport England's Coronavirus (Covid-19) Report, which can be accessed here.

The disruption caused by coronavirus also impacted the collection of data. Sport England were unable to collect any data during the last two weeks of the spring term (late March) when schools were closed, while also having to switch from school to at home completion for the summer term.

As a result, there isn't any data covering the first full lockdown. The summer term data starts from mid-May, when restrictions began to be eased. In this report, we reveal the impact of these disruptions, the children and young people most affected, and the extent to which children and young people switched into alternative or adapted activities over the year.

This report covers:

  • Levels of activity
  • Types of activity
  • Volunteering
  • Outcomes
  • Loneliness
  • Attitudes
  • Local level data
