The Daily Mile at Home

We would like to introduce all families across the UK to The #DailyMileAtHome.  It’s an easy and fun way to keep fit and maintain good health and wellbeing for you and your children.

Instructions from the UK government are very clear – they are allowing us to take exercise outdoors, as long as we can keep a safe distance from others. Further government guidance on this can be found below. We all need to try to be physically active and The Daily Mile at Home can help almost everyone to do this. We believe that it will be useful for children, parents and carers in helping them to look after their physical and mental health.

We already have Daily Mile guidance for schools, and now we’ve adapted it so you can use it at home and enjoy the same benefits. These come from 15 minutes or more of walking, running or jogging in the fresh air – doing it at whatever pace suits you best and wearing what you’ll feel most comfortable in. We’d love to see you doing The Daily Mile, so be sure to post on social media using #DailyMileAtHome.

Fun Projects at Home

Trying to teach your children at home during lockdown is not the easiest thing to do – it can be quite a frazzling experience for parents. We’d like to lift some of the strain off you and suggest that the children do the work and you listen!
