HC Deb 15 December 1998 vol 322 c482W
Mr. Michael J. Foster

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment how many and what percentage of teachers in(a) primary and (b) secondary schools are PE trained. [63440]

Mr. Charles Clarke

In 1996–97, some 26,000 full and part-time teachers in English maintained secondary schools (approximately 13 per cent.) had a post A level qualification in physical education.

Similar information for primary teachers is not available. However, primary teachers are trained to deliver the whole primary curriculum including physical education.
