The New Opportunities for PE and Sport initiative (NOPES) is a £751 million sports investment across the UK with intended key outcomes of: improving physical education and sport in schools ; higher standards across the whole school ; increased physical activity in the school age population and their communities ; improved collaboration co-operation and partnership between schools and their communities ; promotion of social inclusion and ; innovation and best practice in the design and management of facilities. Across the UK the programme is predominantly capital in nature, proving funding for new sport facilities. However, in Scotland there is a revenue funded Activities Programme which is split into two strands, Out of School Hours Activities and Active Steps, which have their own particular key outcomes. This report details the progress and findings of the evaluation of the NOPES programme for the 12 month period from February 2004 to January 2005. The evaluation is being conducted for the Big Lottery Fund by the Loughborough Partnership, led by the Institute of Youth Sport.
