Daily Mile Launch.

20th Sep 2019

*** The Daily Mile ***

Today we launched our latest innovation in the form of The Daily Mile.

The Daily Mile is a fully-inclusive, free and simple initiative which improves the physical and mental health of children. It’s a social activity where the children run or jog, at their own pace, for 15 minutes every day and it improves focus in the classroom.

With your child doing The Daily Mile at school you can support this at home, by both encouraging their confidence in running and moving outside with them, out of school hours. Parents often say that The Daily Mile helps children to eat and sleep better and that often they become young ambassadors for whole family fitness!

We will be gradually introducing this new concept into our school life from next week onwards. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates!
