Abstract

In 2013, GoWell in the East End commenced a cohort study of physical activity among secondary school pupils in Glasgow. The study will run from 2013 to 2017, following a group of pupils throughout their school career from S1 to S5. The study tracks pupils’ participation in physical activities, including sports, as well as other types of activity, during their school time and leisure time, during the week and at the weekend. The research is done by asking pupils to complete the Youth Physical Activity Questionnaire (YPAQ)1 . A group of S5 pupils were also asked to complete the survey in 2013 in order to provide a benchmark with which to compare the S1 study cohort when they reach S5 in 2017. The overall survey main findings are published in a Headline Indicators report available at www.gowellonline.com.
