The Daily Mile
The aim of the Daily Mile is to improve the physical, emotional and social health and wellbeing of our children – regardless of age or personal circumstances.
It is a profoundly simple but effective concept, which any primary school can implement. Its impact can be immense - improving not only the children's fitness, but also their concentration levels, mood, behaviour and general wellbeing.
The Daily Mile is simple and free and gets children out of the classroom for fifteen minutes every day to run or jog, at their own pace, with their classmates, making them fitter, healthier, and more able to concentrate in the classroom.

Development Manager - Children & Young People
Whilst studying Sports Development at University I undertook a 12 month placement with Active Norfolk. Having finished my degree I returned to Norfolk as a Rural Sports Development Officer delivering the Village Games before managing projects such as Sport Makers, Satellite Clubs and School Games.
I am now the strategic lead for Children and Young People within the organisation. My role is to develop relationships and partnerships with organisations that engage with young people to improve understanding and awareness of the importance of physical activity on young people's health and well-being; identify relevant and appropriate funding opportunities; and align resources to bring about programmes and initiatives on a needs-led basis.
I am also the Localities lead for West Norfolk and North Norfolk, which sees me working with key partners across a range of sectors in those areas to identify areas of greatest need and identify the ways in which physical activity and sport can be utilised to address local problems.
