New opportunities for PE and sport: Year 5 evaluation summary

E-mail Print

The NOPES programme was launched in November 2002. A total of £750.75 million was available for the programme across the UK. To date [2008] 2,980 facilities have been funded across the UK, ranging from outdoor activity centres to new or refurbished facilities at schools. All funding for the programme has now been committed.

The NOPES programme has six key outcomes:

  • improved physical education and sport in schools
  • higher standards across the whole school through PE, sport and other forms of structured activity
  • better opportunities to increase the levels of physical activity among the school age population and, more generally, local communities
  • improved collaboration, co-operation and partnership between schools and between schools and their communities
  • promotion of social inclusion through access to, and use of, sports and outdoor adventure facilities by all groups in society
  • innovation and best practice in the design and management of facilities.
