The Daily Mile


Our school has decided to start a brand new challenge to help us all become more fit and healthy. The Daily Mile is a challenge which was started in Scotland by a headteacher who was concerned about the increase of childhood obesity. This challenge means all children will walk 1 mile every day. It is inclusive of all abilities and aims to increase the fitness of each child within 4 weeks. There are more than 2500 schools taking part in the UK and Ireland. More information can be found on

Every child will participate at some point during the school day so please ensure that your child has a bottle of water with them to school and a coat.
