Inactivity and obesity levels amongst children are rising alarmingly and will damage the future lives of millions of children. Eventually this will threaten the financial viability of the NHS. With correct preventative interventions this can be avoided while also improving the attendance, attainment and behaviour of pupils.

      It is vital we tackle PE, health and sports provision in primary schools, if we are to have any chance to save future generations from unhealthy lifestyle habits! Adopting and fostering healthier lifestyles, promoting lifelong physical activity participation and embedding these at the youngest age possible is fundamental if we are to prevent inactivity and obesity levels.

      Children are our future and higher levels of activity do not just benefit sport but also health, self worth and drive!
