Response 17-03-2017 

1. 100% for P4 - P7

2. 100% for P1 - P3

3. Of the 46 primary schools, 44 have a dedicated PE teacher.

4. Figures for 1996 & 2006 are no longer available. 2016 - 7.88FTE

5. 3,798 (the number of individual sessions facilitated by Active Schools Coordinators).

6. None. Active Schools does not deliver sessions as part of the school curriculum.  Active Schools organises a number of the flagship sporting events for children in Moray, most notably the Primary Schools Cross Country, and these events serve as the culmination of sessions delivered in school by PE teachers, but these are one-off off-site events and not series of sessions delivered in individual schools.

7. No.  Active Schools works with PE partners on the pathway from school to community sport, this usually takes the form of providing after-school activities that build on the work of PE teacher/class teacher-led sessions in schools, or arranging access to schools for community club coaches to promote their activities but these do not count towards the PE target.   Additionally, Active Schools runs a training calendar which focuses on sport/activities that can be delivered by volunteers; occasionally these courses are attended by PE teachers and they adapt the activities to use as contexts for learning within their PE lessons.

8. 1,366 (the number of individual sessions facilitated by Active Schools Coordinators).

9. None. Active Schools does not deliver sessions as part of the school curriculum.  Competitions as part of the School Sport Competition calendar for secondary schools often take place during the school day, providing a focal point for sessions delivered in or out of school by PE teachers/other school staff/volunteers and an opportunity for schools to come together in a spirit of friendly competition, but these are one-off off-site events and not a series of sessions delivered in individual schools.
