Public Health England has published a report showing the level of 'school readiness' among London's children.
In this report, school readiness is used as an indicator of how prepared a child is to succeed in school cognitively, socially and emotionally. School readiness is important because it has a strong impact on educational outcomes, participation in crime, health and mortality in later life. Children who do not achieve a good level of development struggle with social skills, reading, maths and physical skills.
Increasing physical activity is one of the strategies identified to improve school readiness because of its importance in early brain development, learning, movement and communication skills.
