Activity Levels are important because in Bolton local insight shows us that:
36.2% of children finish Primary School overweight or obese, we know that physical activity has an impact on obesity levels.
The average number of points at the end of KS4 in terms of GCSE's is 355.2 compared to 366.3 in England. We know that physical activity can have an impact on attainment, by improving brain function.
However 20% of children are living in poverty compared to 17% in England. The Active Lives survey shows us that children and young people from less affluent families are more likely to be less active.
