We believe that schools across the country will benefit from implementing The Daily Mile.

Schools that are already involved say that they really value it. Teachers say thats the children benefit from being outside in the fresh air, running with their friends. It supports classroom learning and it improves the children’s confidence, concentration and behaviour.

To make it easy for you to implement The Daily Mile, we’ve put together everything you need to get started; a booklet containing all the information you require, a template letter for parents/carers, and a sample risk assessment.

You can download all resources from the resource page found here.

If you have any queries about starting The Daily Mile at your school, please see our FAQs or contact healthy.schools@wales.nhs.uk.

Wishing you all the best on your journey!
