Palfrey Infant School

Happy Children Aiming High


Daily Mile

The aim of The Daily Mile is to improve the physical, emotional, social and mental health and wellbeing of our children – regardless of age, ability or personal circumstances.


At Palfrey Infants this will take place either before or after lunch. We aim for 8-10 laps of the playground within the 15 minute session. The Daily Mile is physical activity in a social setting and should be fun for the children. They can chat to their friends as they walk, skip, jog, or hop  along enjoying the experience together.

It’s always fully inclusive – every child, every day. They should all be out together in the fresh air. Children with mobility difficulties will be supported to take part.
Children enjoy being outside in the different types of weather, connecting with nature and being aware of the seasons. Please ensure your child has a warm coat and appropriate shoes for walking. We use our playground for the daily mile so it is always a safe environment.

The children go at their own pace. Done properly, it’s not always a walk – able-bodied children should aim to run, jog, skip or jump for the full 15 minutes with only occasional stops to catch their breath, if necessary.

The Daily Mile is 15 golden minutes of childhood where the children go out into the fresh air and run, jog or walk, at their own pace, every day in their schools and nurseries.
