if what is reported is true, then as others have said, this is discgusting and needs taking up with the school. I would suggest taking it up with the school's Learning mentor who will be aware of working with child psychology issues and will be keen to do his/her best on these aspects.
medical checks will be carried out by the local authority's school nursing teams, who you would think are qualified, but certainly not by teachers (for those who think teachers should stick to teaching)
If we combat obesity with more PE or whatever, what would this be at the expense of? An hour's more PE, an hours less Maths? or extend the school day?
Maybe as someone has suggested, this was lost in translation. Maybe she misinterpreted what was said. Maybe a poor joke by the nurse was taken literally (certainly misguided if this was so) , who knows?
And maybe (and don't take this the wrong way) she is looking for a way out of eating (and all that goes with it) and saying this is that way out and hopefully gains your support.
I will try to get more info about it, but as I've said my daughter is usually pretty good at remembering situations, far too accurately sometimes and to my embarrassment
unlike her younger sister that get's everything wrapped round her neck and is a bit of a fantasist. It was casually said though, she didn't think it was odd, she just said "I had a physical today and they said I must have too much internal fat as I weighed more than I should" I think they might of mixed things up themselves as, before our scales broke, she was underweight.
I'm not sure she's thinking of cutting down on food though, there's not much to cut out to be honest, she's always seen herself as skinny, but of course if she did show signs of an eating disorder, and that can be hard to spot, she'd get all my help and support.
You can't buy happiness but you can buy a bike and that's pretty close
