Jo Inchley, Fiona Mitchell, Candace Currie

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


Fit for Girls is a joint programme between sportscotland and the Youth Sport Trust which promotes physical activity among girls aged 11-16, specifically those who are least likely to be active. Funded by the Scottish Government, Fit for Girls aims to bring about sustainable change in schools and build a positive future for girls participation in lifelong physical activity. This first interim report presents findings from a survey of all S2 girls in secondary schools across Scotland, undertaken as part of the evaluation of the Fit for Girls programme. The findings reveal predominantly positive attitudes towards physical education (PE) and physical activity. Overall, levels of enjoyment were high and most girls said they would like to be more active.
