Dear Parents/Caregivers,

All children in aged 8-18 years have been invited by the Welsh Institute of Physical Activity, Health and Sport (WIPAHS) to take part in a study looking at the effects of COVID-19 on children’s mental health, well-being and physical activity levels. The study is supported by core funding from the Welsh Government.

We have attached the information sheet provided by WIPAHSto share with you to ask your permission for your child(ren) to take part. Please read the information carefully and if you are happy to take part, please click the link and complete the parental consent form. The school will be provided with a summary of the findings to help inform our action to improve children’s health and well-being. The questionnaire will be undertaken at home.
