The Daily Mile County Recognition Scheme

The Daily Mile is 15 minutes wherein children jog or run, at their own pace during the school day, at a time of the teacher’s choosing. We recommend this be during lesson time, so children have their full break / play time. The Daily Mile is not Sport or PE, but rather health and wellbeing through physical activity. It is a fully-inclusive, free and simple initiative which improves the physical and mental health and wellbeing of children. There is no extra workload for teachers and it helps to raise attainment.

This new scheme is to recognise and reward schools delivering regular physical activity via The Daily Mile, through its Core Principles.  It is introduced with backing from both the Director of Public Health and the Director of Education at the City and County Councils, to help embed The Daily Mile within the school day.
