More PE, better test scores

More physical activity in primary schools equates to higher test scores.

Recent studies have shown that students' who are more physically active tend to perform better in the classroom and on NAPLAN tests.

Daily physical education and regular exercise improves students’ concentration and cognitive functioning contributing to a positive classroom environment.

Not only does increased physical activity in school improve academic performance, schools experience greater attendance and fewer disciplinary problems.
