Through the national school sport strategy the Government are revitalising competitive school sport
The 2005-06 school sport survey showed that:
97 per cent. of schools held a competitive sports day,
71 per cent. of pupils were involved in intra-school competition, and
37 per cent. of pupils from years 4-11 were involved in inter-school competition, up 12 per cent. on 2004.
We are developing a network of competition managers across school sport partnerships to continue to improve the quality and quantity of competitive school sport. In addition, we have established the UK school games.
