HC Deb 10 April 2002 vol 383 c305W
Mr. Greenway

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture. Media and Sport what assessment she has made of the ability of schools to hold an annual sports day. [45110]

Tessa Jowell

The Government have so far designated 506 school sport co-ordinators, to be placed within secondary schools across the country, who will have specific responsibility for planning and organising inter and intra-school competitive sport, including sports days. We have set a target of 1,000 co-ordinators in place by 2004, and it is expected that secondary schools—and through them, primary schools—in every LEA will have access to their expertise and support by that date. In addition, guidance is available from Sport England on holding school sports days.
