Obesity rates in Hull’s youngest school children are on the rise, according to the latest figures published in the Government’s National Child Measurement Programme.
Sarah Wilson, headteacher at Newland St John’s Academy in West Hull, said the figures in the report were a “sad” reflection on the work that still needs to be done to tackle the problem. Mrs Wilson said: “We offer a broad spectrum of opportunities to help keep our children fit, including The Daily Mile… we encourage our pupils to participate in 15 minutes of running per day.”
