Twenty-five percent of secondary schools and seven percent of primary schools, making up a total of 10% of all Scottish schools, are affiliated to Scottish Gymnastics. These schools participate in the many schools gymnastics competitions run by the Scottish and British Schools Gymnastics panels and perform in display festivals such as the SGA Schools Gymfest which is held annually in May.
Gymnastics in the Curriculum
Gymnastics in the curriculum significantly enriches the PE experience for primary school children but it is also one of the main areas that schools require support for PE. Scottish Gymnastics has provided in-service training to 259 teachers and aims to have teachers qualified to deliver gymnastics in one out of every five primary schools. For more information on in-service training for teachers contact the SGA Education department on 01786 466232.
