Golden Mile for Schools
The Golden Mile is a safe, simple and measurable health & physical activity initiative accessible to all your pupils, regardless of age or ability. They aim to inspire and encourage your school community through physical activity with the focus on fun, rewarding personal achievement, raising money and school competition. They reinforce the message from the Department of Health that children should engage in regular daily physical activity habits across the week, every week all year round.
The Golden Mile is an ALL YEAR ROUND initiative whereby Pupils, Staff and parents can get involved. Simply walk, jog or run around your Golden Mile track within the safety of the school grounds and then use our downloadable resources to help you upload the number of laps your pupil’s achieve. Your interactive School and class pages will do the rest and convert laps into Miles and display the pupil’s progress via graphs, league tables.
Golden Mile encourages class teachers to champion and take ownership of their class progress along with the pupils. As soon as you register your school the class competitions can begin!
