Active Lessons Study – Information for Parents


The CASE active lessons study is currently being run in three schools in the East of England; the aim is to improve young people’s health by increasing activity and reducing sitting during the school day. We are interested to know if introducing ‘active lessons’ into secondary schools is a feasible and enjoyable way to promote activity in adolescents.

Active lessons use activity during lessons to support student’s learning. Active lessons are different from regular classroom lessons because they give students the opportunity to move around instead of sitting down for the whole lesson. Active lessons have been shown to improve student’s focus, academic performance, and lesson engagement.

At each participating school, students from two year groups are invited to help the research team evaluate the active lessons study. If your child is in one of the selected year groups, he/she will have received a paper-copy of this study information sheet:
