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 study forms part of our wider research into the impacts of the Commonwealth Games, along with associated regeneration and legacy programmes, on the communities of the East End of Glasgow.

A total of 740 S1 pupils completed the survey across six schools in May 2013: 391 girls and 349 boys. This report presents some of the key findings from that 2013 baseline survey of S1 pupils, comparing results for boys and girls across each of the six schools for four activity areas:

• Sports
• Active Travel to School
• Screen Time
• Homework
