The Daily Mile
The Daily Mile is a health and wellbeing initiative that gets children to run, jog or walk outdoors for about 15 minutes every day. It was introduced four years ago by Elaine Wyllie, headteacher of St. Ninians Primary in Stirling, Scotland. In 2015, Elaine was given a Pride of Britain award for creating the idea.
At Round Hill we are already beginning to see the benefits – the staff report that the daily exercise is improving fitness levels and is contributing to good behaviour and increased concentration levels back in the classroom.
If you would like to find out more about the why we decided to get involved then please click here. As always we will evaluate how we are getting and make improvements as we go along. We have encouraged feedback from children and the staff and I been out doing the mile ourselfs. We would welcome your feedback too, so please do get in touch.
