Evaluation of the implementation and impact of the Creating Active Schools framework


The Creating Active Schools (CAS) framework has been co-designed by 50 experts in health and education, supporting schools to embed physical activity in policies, systems, behaviours and environments, so that it becomes everyone’s responsibility; from pupils, to staff, parents and governor.

This research aims to evaluate the implementation and impact of the CAS framework and programme using a mixed methods approach. The research will identify how the CAS is being implemented in schools and the changes that occurred including the overall impact on physical activity.
