The aim of The Daily Mile is to improve the physical, social, emotional and mental health, and well being of our children – regardless of age, ability or personal circumstances.
It is a profoundly simple but effective concept, completely free of charge which any school can implement. Its impact can be transformational – improving not only the children’s fitness, but also their attainment, mood, behaviour and general well being. The Daily Mile is not sport or PE, but health and wellbeing through daily physical activity.
The children will be encouraged to jog or run outside for 15 minutes everyday at a time of their teacher’s choosing. In this time, most children will average a mile or more distance – and so, The Daily Mile is born!
See below the photos of our pupils taking part in their first challenge along with the initial calculations carried out by our year 6's to work out how many laps of the playground are equivalent to 1 mile!
