The Daily Mile
In KS2, our children take part in a daily mile each day. The aim of The Daily Mile is to improve the physical, social, emotional and mental health and wellbeing of our children – regardless of age, ability or personal circumstances.
The Daily Mile is a social physical activity, with children running or jogging – at their own pace – in the fresh air with friends. Children can occasionally walk to catch their breath, if necessary, but should aim to run or jog for the full 15 minutes.
The Daily Mile Works!
It takes place in 15 minutes, with most children averaging a mile, or more, each day.
Children run outside in the fresh air – and the weather is a benefit, not a barrier.
Children run in their uniforms so no kit or changing time is needed.
It’s social, non-competitive and fun.
The children return to class ready to learn.
It helps to improve fitness and achieve a healthy weight.
It encourages children to be aware of their health.
It’s fully inclusive; every child, whatever their circumstances, age or ability, succeeds at The Daily Mile.
