Regular population surveillance of physical activity and sedentary behaviour will help to guide local evidence-based policy and practice. Our team have extensive experience in physical activity research. 

As part of a global initiative, we led the production of the Bailiwick’s first Active Healthy Kids Report Card in 2018. This will be updated in October 2022. The 2018 Report Card comprises a set of nine different indicators which provides a snapshot of activity levels amongst our young people, but an overview of the key policies and practices that help or hinder physical activity. We are now supporting a range of projects to enhance physical activity levels amongst local children and young people based on the Report Card’s findings, including improving data and surveillance.

We have conducted a study of physical activity levels using activity monitors in over 300 Primary School age children. You can download the results below.
