To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many children in each London borough took part in after-school sports in each year since 1997.
Data are not collected centrally in the format requested.
The annual School Sport Survey has been running for the past four years, but the survey has only collected data by local authority since 2004/05. The following table sets out the percentage of pupils in each local authority taking part in at least two hours of high quality PE and school sport in a typical week for the last three years. Direct comparisons between local authorities are not appropriate as the number of schools in school sport partnerships, and the length of time they have been within partnerships, differs. Since September 2006, all maintained schools in England have been within a school sport partnership.
|Percentage of pupils taking part in at least two hours high quality PE and sport a week by London borough|
