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. 
§ 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.
