Young school students could soon be fitness tested as part of NAPLAN.

.

Children at primary schools across NSW could be forced to undergo fitness tests as part of a planned revamp of NAPLAN testing.

.

NewsCorp Australia reports that students as young as 9-years-old would be included in the fitness exams aimed at ranking schools on an obesity scale.

.

The plan is said to be a recommendation in an unreleased report commissioned by the NSW Government that takes aim at some schools failing to teach sport seriously.

.

According to NewsCorp, the Baird Government investigation shows 80 percent of primary school sports teachers aren’t specialists in their field while nearly half of high school sports classes were rated as too easy.

.

The yet-to-be-released document reportedly recommends that the fitness testing become a part of the NAPLAN result, with only one-in-five children currently meeting their daily exercise requirements.

.

But Labor education spokesman Jihad Dib said there were better options available.

.

“The introduction of mandatory physical testing is not the way to go,” he told Macquarie Radio.

.

“If the government is serious what they should be looking at doing is introducing mandatory fitness programs or healthy lifestyle choices, or things that will support students in terms of tackling the obesity epidemic.”

.

NAPLAN, or the National Assessment Program — Literacy and Numeracy as it’s formally known, is a series of tests focused on basic skills that are administered annually to Australian students.
