Schools: Sports

Volume 501: debated on Wednesday 25 November 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families which sport has the highest rate of participation for females in schools. (300772)

The Department's annual PE and Sport Survey collects data from maintained schools in England and relate to the range and type of sporting activities that schools provide for their pupils. However, at the moment, it does not break this down by pupils' gender. We are proposing to make changes to the survey from next year which will enable us to show this information broken down by gender.
