More than two in three parents say they have seen their children’s physical activity levels decrease during lockdown, new research published ahead of schools reopening has found.

The research, commissioned by children’s charity the Youth Sport Trust and conducted by YouGov, also found that only a minority of parents (21%) believe their children are currently active for at least the recommended average of 60 minutes every day.

The Youth Sport Trust has said that the findings show the urgent need for a renewed focus on sport and physical education when pupils return to schools following lockdown.
