Active Schools Monitoring Online (ASMO) is a robust monitoring system which; gathers, analyses and presents data which looks at participation within extra-curricular activities. Each term Active Schools Coordinators collect afterschool activity data from each school which they input into sportscotland’s online data service ‘My Sport’ This data is then collated and fed back at the end of each year. This information is then used to help planning for the following year.
In February 2020, four hundred Orkney pupils were invited to take part in sportscotland’s ASOF survey. Questions focused around how much sport and physical activity pupils take part in at school and within the community.
Two secondary and seven primary schools took part in the survey. The information recorded will allow a broader understanding of how sportscotland projects directly impact the Active Scotland Outcomes Framework.
The returns will specifically aid sportscotland to understand Orkney’s local sporting culture, while also evaluating how people get into sport, what the benefits are on people’s lives and what individuals’ goals are.
