The Daily Mile

Barley Close are proud to be taking part in the Daily Mile, with children across the whole school (Reception - Year 6) completing 6 laps of our school field to boost their physical activity. 



There are enormous benefits to taking part in this:

  • Improves children’s fitness, leg strength, body composition and reduces body fat
  • Helps children to achieve the WHOs daily recommended activity target
  • Contributes to improved alertness, mood and verbal memory
  • Helps children to concentrate better in class
  • Helps children to feel happier
  • Promotes positive peer-to-peer relationships
  • Children report feeling calmer after completing the Daily Mile
  • Improves children’s attitudes towards physical activity
