Daily Mile Update

Daily Mile Success!

As you are already aware, at Wormley, we are striving to undertake the Daily Mile at least 3 times a week during the school day. It consists of the children (and adults!) being outside and running/fast walking around a set course for 15 minutes.

The Daily Mile aims to improve the physical, social, emotional and mental health and well-being of our pupils – regardless of age, ability or personal circumstances.

Research has shown that it increases attainment in learning and parents have reported an increased interest in health and well-being . Teachers also report the positive impact it has on the children’s focus in lessons.

Results of the first official evaluation on the Daily Mile, which is extremely positive, can be found in the links below.

Well done to all the children for taking part in this initiative.
Keep it up 🙂
