Abstract

The ‘Am I Bovvered?’ project is a two-year study aiming to develop, implement and evaluate sustainable exercise-based interventions with girls aged 11-15 years in order to improve their engagement in regular physical activity. This report summarises the findings from the first phase of this three-part project. This was an exploratory phase of the study, using focus groups with girls aged 11-12 and 14-15, recruited from two schools in Thanet, East Kent. These same schools will collaborate in the further phases of the project. The focus groups were designed to gain insights into the girls’ understandings of the relationship between health and physical activity and their attitudes towards sport both in and out of school. Findings from the focus groups will be used to inform the next phase of the study, when interventions will be planned and implemented
