17 new free schools opened with no sports facilities

Seventeen free schools that opened last year did not have any on-site sports facilities, the government has admitted.

A response to a freedom of information request from the Local Schools Network website has shown that 53 free schools opened in September 2018.

Of the 41 that the Department for Education provided information for, 17 had no on-site provision for physical education.

All free schools are required to either have access to outdoor space for physical education or to make sure pupils can use nearby, off-site provision.
