The children at The Priors School take part in The Daily Mile Programme. Every child in Classes 1, 2 and 3 run for 15 minutes every single day. It is not competitive though some will compete and that is fine. Most children will average a mile in the 15 minutes, with some doing more and some doing less. It is not PE, sport or cross-country but physical activity in a social setting which is aimed at improving the children’s physical, social, emotional and mental health, and well-being. The children run in their ordinary school clothes with trainers being ideal but not essential. It can help children to focus and concentrate in the classroom and raise their attainment. And most importantly, the children really enjoy it.
We are really enjoying The Daily Mile!
