It is a requirement of every primary school in Scotland to provide at least 2 hours of PE to all pupils and for every secondary school in Scotland to provide 100 minutes of PE to all pupils in S1-S4.

As pupils are in school on average 38 weeks per year, the figures are as follows:

Primary Schools

P1 - 76 hours

P2 - 76 hours

P3 - 76 hours

P4 - 76 hours

P5 - 76 hours

P6 - 76 hours
