FOI Request PE Injuries
Please can you tell me how many school pupils sustained injuries while participating in timetabled physical education lessons (NOT extra-curricular activities) between August 2014 and June 2017?
* The nature of the injury (eg head injury; laceration; broken bone)
* The specific activity in which the pupil was participating when the injury occurred (eg dodge ball; gymnastics; volleyball).
* Any first aid administered at the scene?
* Did the pupil require hospital treatment?
I would appreciate if you could arrange responses to the aforementioned questions into the following age groups:
Also, please outline what, if any, measures have been implemented to reduce the risk of further accidents during P.E classes (including the banning of any activities).
Please find response attached HERE. It should be noted that this information has been taken from incident report forms that have been received in HQ. Any further information held in individual pupils files would be exempt under Section 12 of the Freedom of information (Scotland) Act 2002- Excessive Cost of Compliance as there are over 12000 pupils in Moray.
