She added: “It is recommended that all children aged five to 18 engage in 60 minutes of physical activity each day, of which 30 minutes should be in school.

"At Throston, we offer this with not only break time activities but also within the school day.

“If children sit too long then they often switch off and therefore their learning becomes impacted.”
