High Peak MP Andrew Bingham has shown his support for high quality PE and sport in schools by becoming a School Sport Champion.

Mr Bingham attended the parliamentary launch of the Youth Sport Trust “Unlocking Potential” Manifesto, which is calling on the next government to ensure every child has access to PE and sport opportunities at school.

He said: “The London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics showed that we are a nation of sport lovers. PE and school sport are also a vital tool for helping us combat inactivity, as they help young people to stay fit and healthy.

“I will continue to promote the benefits of PE and sport both in Parliament and with headteachers and young people across the High Peak.”
