The Daily Mile

The Daily Mile

Posted: 23rd May 2018

Active youngsters in Roydon are improving their lifestyles by taking part in the Daily Mile.

The initiative encourages children to run, jog or walk for 15 minutes each day to improve their physical, social, emotional and mental health and wellbeing.

Schools up and down the country are taking up the challenge, with pupils at Roydon Primary Academy the latest to get on board.

It is hoped the school will have a track installed to enable children to complete the Daily Mile in all weathers. At the moment, pupils tackle 15 to 20 laps of the school basketball court.

Michael Clark, head of school, “The Daily Mile is an opportunity for our children to get a period of continuous exercise each day. They do not have to run, it is about just getting moving and being active.

“Physical activity is a huge priority at Roydon. We take part in so many sporting competitions and have two hours of specialist PE lessons each week, as well as dance lessons.

“The Daily Mile means that when they are not in their PE lesson or taking part in a competition, we can make sure they are keeping active every day.

“For those who are not generally as active, it’s an opportunity to break the day up and focus their minds.

“It has been a big success and we want to make it part of our culture at Roydon.”

Pupils tag their Daily Mile on to their PE lessons twice a week and the other days their class teachers fit it in around their timetable.
