78% of UK children failing to meet recommended fitness levels

78% of UK children failing to meet recommended fitness levels

Press release:

Fit For Sport, the UK’s leaders in engaging and educating children and young people through physical activity, have revealed that a worrying 78% of primary school pupils across the UK measured through their Healthy Active Schools System (HASS) are failing to meet the recommended fitness levels for their age group.

The leading childcare activity provider launched HASS back in January 2017 in a bid to tackle inactivity amongst primary school pupils, with an estimated one in three children in the UK beginning secondary school as obese.


The Benefits of Active Travel

In 2016 Public Health England released 'Working together to promote active travel', a briefing to local authoritites that aims to encourage more daily physical activity.

October is National Walk To School Month and this offers the perfect opportunity for parents and children to leave those car keys at home and slip on a pair of trainers for an active journey to school.


The problem with not adequately prioritising daily physical activity at school

The problem with not adequately prioritising daily physical activity at school

Millions of kids have started the new school year and are excited to see their friends, meet their new teachers and get back to their favourite activities. However many kids won’t get enough of one of the biggest necessities for their overall development, health and wellbeing, which is their daily physical activity requirements. Whether it takes place in the sports hall, on the playground or in the classroom, physical activity plays a vital role in a child’s physical, social, emotional and academic development.


Why Active Schools do better

  • Written by Oisin Fahim on Sunday 1 September 2019 in the category Active Schools.

The recent alarming projection that four in ten adults will be overweight or obese by 2035 highlights how essential it is to educate the next generation on the importance of leading active lives from an early age, something that can help curb that downward spiral.
