Exploring the effect of a school‐based cluster‐randomised controlled trial to increase the scheduling of physical activity for primary school students on teachers’ physical activity

Over nine months, 76 teachers in 12 Australian primary schools were given support to help them increase the amount of physical activity they scheduled in their classes. This included physical education, sport, energisers, and integrated lessons. The study found that when teachers were given this type of support, it could have an impact on their own physical activity.
