Children at Littleham C of E Primary School have started the new term with a determination to get fit.
The Monday after school club is called ‘Fit For All’ and is run by Miss Jem Brooke from SportsNet.
Headteacher Duncan Nelmes said: “We aim to increase participation and have fun in the process. We take this area very seriously and are proud of the range of sports on offer in a small school.”
“We have a tradition of participation in a wide variety of events, from Kids’ Half marathon, netball, tag rugby and other events organised through the Exmouth Learning Community.”
It follows the coalition government pledging £150 million-a-year nationally following London 2012.

A typical primary school with 250 primary aged pupils would receive £9,250 per year.
This is the equivalent of around two days a week of a primary teacher or a coach’s time - enough to make sure every pupil in the school can take part in sport.
