Further investment announced in school sport, outlined in the Government's Childhood Obesity Strategy.
The plan aims to tackle the childhood obesity crisis by channelling the money raised by the Soft Drink Industry Levy into physical activity and healthy eating initiatives for school children. This includes doubling the Primary PE and Sport Premium and investing an extra £10 million a year into school breakfast clubs.
Primary schools are asked to help every pupil to get 30 of the recommended 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical exercise a day in school time. It is suggested that PE, active break times and after school clubs can promote activity at school, while parents and carers are expected to support the additional 30 minutes a day of exercise out of school time.
A healthy rating scheme will also be introduced to encourage primary schools to support activity and healthy eating for their pupils. This will be recognised in Ofsted inspections.Back
