  1. Note:a Reasoning for the lower use of these session components compared to others may be explained by students/teachers being given the option to choose one of the three for Activity 4 within the proposed session structure (see Supplementary Table 1 and Supplementary Fig. 1a)
  2. b Calculated as the sum of all numbered (#) items within the intervention fidelity section
  3. c Calculated using the sum of all scores for that SAAFE element, divided by the highest possible score (i.e., 15 for supportive, autonomous, fair, and enjoyable; 20 for active)
  4. d on a 5-point scale ranging from not at all true (1) to very true (5)
