School playing fields NEED PROTECTING!!!

We need to protect ALL school playing fields from greedy government sponsored developers and two hours a week of sport should be an absolute minimum requirement. This is particularly important in our internet age where youngsters are becoming increasingly sedentary due to the internet, mobile devices and social media.
It is completely typical of the D of E to publish two totally contradictory statements. Firstly saying that they are “putting competitive sport at the heart of the new school curriculum” then stating that regarding a minimum requirement for school sport that “the two-hour target was never a rule. It was an unenforceable aspiration that schools were free to ignore.”
Why can’t it be enforced? Put it in the timetable twice a week!
In my day it was called ‘Games’ which it seems is what the Government is playing with our children’s health, wellbeing and sporting potential!

UK teachers need more time and resources to produce gold medals

In order for state schools to encourage pupil participation in sport there are two key elements that need to be in place; funding and teacher time. Since the withdrawal of the School Sport Partnership funding, finances are extremely tight.
The present structure of state education is so filled with red tape and bureaucracy it gives teachers precious little time during school hours to devote to extra-curricular activities like sports matches.
In essence teachers need more time and resources to produce future gold medallists!
