She also discussed her hope for an extended school day and how this would help allow more time for sports and enrich children’s education making them well-rounded.

Ms Drummond said: ‘It cannot be underestimated how much sport teaches children key skills like teamwork and resilience and it gives them a lifelong love of activity.’

‘Meeting with the trust has made me even more sure the government should look at a longer school day to help meet activity targets and give children the extra-curricular activities that do so much to make them responsible and well-adjusted young people and adults.’
