star this property answer text <p>Health inequalities are a challenging and complex area - deeply rooted, difficult to turn around and driven by a variety of factors.

It has produced a number of data and analysis tools to help places to understand the health of their populations and the issues driving ill health and health inequalities.

star this property answer text <p>The Government is clear that physical education (PE) and school sport is important because it teaches pupils the importance of developing healthy habits from an early age that can have positive impacts on pupil health, mental wellbeing, character and childhood obesity. The first ever Active Lives Children and Young People Survey published by Sport England on 6 December showed that around 3 million children (43.3%) achieved at least an average of 60 minutes of physical activity a day, over the week. The survey report is attached.</p><p> </p><p>Through both chapters of the Childhood Obesity Plan, the Government is supporting the delivery of the UK Chief Medical Officers’ guidelines that every child and young person aged 5 to 18 should get at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity a day. Chapter 2 of the plan promotes a national ambition for every primary school to adopt an active mile initiative, such as the Daily Mile, supported by £1.5 million investment recently announced by Sport England.</p><p> </p><p>Since 2013, through the primary PE and sport premium the Government has invested over £1 billion of ring-fenced funding to primary schools to improve PE and sport. A further £100 million of revenue generated from the soft drinks industry levy has been used for the Healthy Pupils Capital Fund in 2018-19, which improves children’s access to facilities for physical activity.</p><p> </p><p>In October the Government announced a new School Sport and Activity Action Plan to be published in spring 2019 which will help get more young people active and enjoying the benefits of sport.</p>
