PE - secondary

“The School Sport Award is a great continuous improvement tool that can be used to evaluate the PEPAS agenda in full; including the Scottish Governments entitlement to 2 hours/periods of Physical Education. The tool will help schools to evaluate their inclusive practice and aid delivery of a holistic approach to all aspects of school sport” 

Tracy Johnston, Senior Education Officer, Education Scotland
