Schools told to make sure children an hour of physical activity each day

The government is urging schools to build an hour of physical activity into the school day after a survey showed that most children spend less than 30 minutes exercising.

A new school sports plan will set out a range of measures to strengthen the role of sport within a young person’s daily routine, explain how teachers and parents can play their part, and promote a joined-up approach to physical activity and mental wellbeing.
