S5W-07882: Miles Briggs (Lothian)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 8 March 2017

To ask the Scottish Government what plans it has to review the two-hour school PE target.

Answered by: John Swinney 21 March 2017

The Scottish Government is committed to increasing physical activity and we want to make Scotland a more active country by encouraging people, and in particular young people, to make physical activity a part of their everyday lives.

98% of primary and secondary schools across Scotland continue to provide at least two hours or two periods of PE each week, in line with the Programme for Government 2016 commitment to maintain the PE commitment. There are no plans to review this target.
