Test fitness at primary school, say health campaigners


Children should be tested for fitness, as well as maths and English, to reduce inactivity, say health campaigners.

Campaign group ukactive says the UK faces a "ticking time bomb" of health problems due to lack of exercise.

Its report says only half of seven-year-olds in England are active for an hour a day, and says more activity should take place in the classroom.

The government says it has increased funding for PE, and that primary schools offer two hours of it per week.
