Premiers Active April
Premier’s Active April gives schools the chance to encourage kids to remain active at home!
In this section, you can learn How to Register for Active April as both a student or teacher, as well as how to create School Teams. We’ve covered many FAQs here, but please Contact Us if you have further questions.
Registration for students and teachers is easy. Once registered you can then create teams – either for individual classes or one team for your whole school.
Team members will be able to view each other’s progress when users log in.
Parents are encouraged to register their children or allow children to register themselves and then join a school/class team that’s been created by the teacher. Alternatively, the teacher can register students on the parent’s behalf.
Students register themselves
Students over 12 years old and with a personal email address can register themselves by following the simple steps below:
Students registered by a parent (under 12 years old)
Students under 12 are not required to enter an email address. Similarly, if a student is over 12 but does not have a personal email address, the parent/guardian should follow these steps:
Students registered by a teacher
While we recommend students be registered separately, in some cases it’s necessary for the teacher to register students into their account.

School teams are a great way to get everyone involved to try and achieve 30 minutes of activity every day.
Check out the School Resources page for some great suggestions on activities you can do as a group.
Teachers can create a team for their individual class or their whole school.
You can do this from:
Follow these simple steps
Please note: You can only create a maximum of 5 teams and join a total of 10 teams.
If the teacher knows the student’s email address or Active April username, they can invite the student to join their team.
Alternatively, students can request to join the team by following the steps below.
A notification will be emailed to the teacher who created the team. When the teacher accepts the request, the student will see the team details when they next log in.
All team members will be able to view the team’s activity log and total time tracked in the Tracker page once they’ve logged in.
Got a question about getting your school involved in Premiers Active April? You’ll most likely find the answer below.
Yes. Teachers can also create teams for their students to join. You can either create a team for your specific class or a team for the whole school to join. This can be done during registration or from the Teams page once you’ve logged in. See our How to Register and School Teams pages for instructions.
Firstly, they’ll need to Register for Active April. If they’re not already registered:
Visit the How to Register page for step-by-step instructions.
Once registered, students can join a school team by requesting to join or being invited into the team by the teacher. Easy instructions for this are found on the School Teams page.
Yes, but we recommend students Register themselves (or have their parents do so for them if under 12 years old). This is so that the parent can log in as each family member, and have the student saved in their account for next year.
Alternatively, teachers can register students if they have parental consent. See the ‘Student registered by a teacher’ section in the How to Register page.
If your students are under 12 years of age, they should have parental consent before they sign up for Active April.
As a teacher, you can Download the Active April Schools Consent Form (DOCX, 892 KB, 1p), print it out and give it to parents along with the Active April Information for Parents Flyer (PDF, 412KB 2pp). Parents can then register their child at home and request to join the team created by the teacher.
That’s okay. They can still join a school team. See above for “How do students join a school team?”
It’s easy. Once a teacher has registered and created a team in the mobile or web app, they’ll be able to see the activity for all students in the team and the team as a whole from the Tracker page. This will be a great way to motivate your students to get involved in Active April. Teachers can use the activity graphs in class to show their students how active the team is.
Yes, if the team as a whole complete the activity! The Tracker allows the Team Owner (usually the teacher) to add activity for the whole team. Go to the Tracker and when adding your activity, simply tick the box that asks ‘Tick if you completed this activity with others to add time to your team mate’s trackers.’
You can track your School’s activity levels from the Active April mobile or web app.
Simply Log In from your smartphone, tablet or computer and click the ‘Track Activity’ button from the Dashboard. It’s a really easy way to see how you’re going, track your own and your team’s activity and encourage each other to get even more active. This year, we’ve made it easier than ever to track your workouts with the Activity Tracker or simply sync the app with your Fitbit.
Tracking activity in the tracker is not mandatory. However, logging your activity will help you achieve online trophies as you reach certain milestones for the number of days you have completed at least 30 minutes of activity. At the end of Active April, we will ask you to tell us how active you were in a survey.
Participants must track their daily activity in the mobile or web app to achieve online trophies. The first activity trophy is for tracking 5 days – so set yourself, your class and your friends the challenge and see how many days and trophies you can collect.
When you’ve logged 5, 10, 15, 20, or 30 days with 30 minutes of activity or more, you’ll get a notification in the mobile or web app that trophies are available to view in your Trophy Cabinet to then print out.
