The Daily Mile is a free initiative supporting schools to get children fit for life and fit for learning by encouraging them to run or jog for 15 minutes every day in their schools. 111 schools in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough are already signed up.
This physical activity promotes social, emotional and mental health and wellbeing, as well as fitness. The Government guidance on full opening of schools mentions activities such as active miles to enable pupils to be physically active while encouraging social distancing.
This Autumn there is a new downloadable resource called Destinations. This is a fun resource where classes travel around the world each time they do The Daily Mile. It can be started at any time. For a limited time, new schools that sign up to The Daily Mile will be sent a pack of the key resources to start them off (the resource pack includes an A1 school poster, class passports and fact sheets and stickers, the certificates and individual destination fact sheets are downloadable for registered schools). These packs can be requested here.
For further general information about The Daily Mile please visit: www.thedailymile.co.uk.
To find out more about The Daily Mile locally and registration details please see the Living Sport website and contact The Daily Mile Local Coordinators:
Schools already registered to The Daily Mile can also request the resource pack here (whilst stocks last!) along with any support they need to re-start or continue with The Daily Mile.
If there any schools that are unsure as to how to access the existing local resources exclusively for registered schools then they should contact Anna or Alana.
