Summary Children spend over half of the after-school period (end-of-school until 6pm) sedentary and one-fifth being active. However, this period makes a large contribution to daily physical activity levels and becomes more important as children transition into secondary school. Correlates of these behaviours differ suggesting intervention strategies should be behaviour specific.
