To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-16751 by Aileen Campbell on 5 June 2018, how much has been spent in each local authority on the Active Schools programme in each year since 2015.
Answered by: Joe FitzPatrick 10 July 2018
Sport Scotland publish their overall revenue investment into each local authority each year. This investment covers Active Schools as well as other areas such as Community Sport Hubs. At present this information covers financial years 2013-14 to 2016-17. sport scotland plans to publish the 2017-18 investment figures following publication of their annual report.
The funding directed every year since 2015 to the Active Scotland programme is an operational matter for sport scotland. However, given your request I have asked the Chief Executive of sport scotland to write to you direct to provide a breakdown of the overall investment figure for Active Schools.
