The Daily Mile

26th Mar 2018

Like a lot of schools all over the world, we have decided to introduce The Daily Mile to our P3-P7 pupils and that they will benefit in my ways when we implement The Daily Mile.

Schools that are already involved say that they really value it. Teachers state that it improves learning readiness, concentration and behaviour – which leads to better attainment. They see how it builds the children’s confidence, resilience and determination while they are enjoying being outside in the fresh air, running with their friends.

We will introduce The Daily Mile to children as a run or jog, not as a walk. If implemented as per core principles, almost all children will be able to run for most, or all of, the way after around 4 weeks. This level of fitness will be maintained or improved over the coming months and years.

Please see attached document and website link below for more information.
