The Daily Mile
We are excited to announce that Nursery Hill Primary School will be taking part in the Daily Mile, Children fit for life. This campaign has one aim – to improve the physical and mental health of children.
The Daily Mile helps to make children fitter, healthier and happier and has a positive impact on their behaviour and concentration levels.
Children participating need to arrive at school, in their sportswear at 8.25am via the main gates and head to the huts where they will be met by a member of staff to put their belongings inside.
The Daily Mile will commence outside Hut 2 at 8.30am by a ring of bell. Parents and carers are welcome to participate too. All Early Years and Key Stage One children must be supervised by an adult.
We will start our route outside the front of Hut 2. There will be staff members to help show you the route to begin with. We will start by walking and in time build up speed if the children feel able. To ensure the safety of our pupils during the Daily Mile, we will be keeping the front gates locked until 8.45am (this will include the car park.)
Only children and parents who are taking part in the Daily Mile will be able to come onto the school site at this time. At 8.45am the Daily Mile will end and Wake Up Shake Up will begin. The gates will be opened to all those not participating in the Daily Mile ready for school to commence as normal.
Children will then collect their things and go into school where they will get changed before going into their classrooms and starting their day.
Unfortunately, this will be an activity determined by the weather, due to the safety of our children. Should we experience any heavy rain, snow or fog the Daily Mile will not go ahead on that morning, but will return the following day, weather permitting.
We will try to update our Facebook page if the Daily Mile is not going ahead and apologise in advance for any short notice.
As a school we feel this would give our children an improved start to the day and we hope you will support us in this campaign.
