Schools in Harrow have joined with partners across the Borough to create the Fit4Life Harrow project.
Date tells us that children in Harrow are not performing well in terms of their health and fitness. The latest figures show that pupils coming into our Reception classes in Harrow are, on average, at 19% overweight or obese and then they are leaving our Primary Schools in Y6 with an average of 38% overweight or obese.
Harrow children also have very high levels of tooth decay. 42.4% of children at the age of 5 have decayed or missing teeth. Harrow also has high levels of Type 2 Diabetes.
Harrow Fit4Life has devised a School Charter which sets out the ambition for schools and parents working together.
