Ofsted have raised concerns over the lack of physical strenuous activity in lessons which fails to push the sportiest pupils or help those overweight.
The inspectorate said that PE lessons in around a third of primary schools, and a quarter of secondary schools, fail to meet standards.
The report added, however overall, the subject is in "good health" thanks to investment within the last decade.
