Fit for girls evaluation: interim report 2.

Jo Inchley, Fiona Mitchell, Candace Currie

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


The Fit for Girls programme (F4G) is a joint initiative between the Youth Sport Trust and sportscotland, aimed at increasing physical activity participation among girls aged 11 to 16 years. The programme was launched in 2008 and is being delivered to all secondary schools across Scotland over three years. The three year roll-out will end in March 2011. A core focus of the programme is to bring about sustainable change in schools that builds a positive future for girls’ participation in physical activity. This is achieved through providing an interactive workshop for practitioners in order to allow them to share and exchange necessary knowledge, tools and skills to be able to successfully consult, plan and implement positive PE experiences and sustainable physical activity programmes for girls in the school setting, and build stronger links with community provision. By the end of September 2010, 327 of the 372 mainstream secondary schools and 13 of the 27 ASN secondary schools were engaged in the Fit for Girls programme.
