“The Daily Mile has quickly become an important part of our school day. We are seeing a positive impact on physical and mental wellbeing and attitudes to learning. There are a lot of smiles and a great sense of achievement for children and staff.”
Cottia Howard, Head Teacher at Upton St Leonards C of E Primary School
The Daily Mile is a national initiative, supporting schools to get children fit for life and fit for learning, by encouraging them to run or jog for 15 minutes every day in their schools or nurseries.
This physical activity promotes social, emotional, and mental health and wellbeing, as well as fitness. It takes place outside in the fresh air during the school day at a time of the teacher’s choosing. Children can run in their school clothes and no special kit or equipment is required.
Sign up to The Daily Mile and become part of the International The Daily Mile community.
Contact our Daily Mile Coordinator, Lisi Cottam for more information.
