The Daily Mile has been in the news over the last year, with many schools taking on this initiative. We have been aware of the benefits of short periods of regular exercise for pupils for some time and have discussed how we could implement this at David Livingstone.
Some classes have started going outside to walk and run more regularly. Children in these classes may ask their parents to make sure they have appropriate footwear and outdoor wear so that they can go outside in all weathers.
At times this may replace some of the timetabled PE sessions.
