The Daily Mile is simple and free, and gets children out of the classroom for 15 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. With one in four of our school children deemed to be overweight or obese by the time they leave primary school, and with growing issues around the mental well being of young people, The Daily Mile can make a marked and lasting difference to the lives of our young people. The Partnership are responsible for encouraging as many schools as possible in Hertfordshire to adopt The Daily Mile.

ITV films The Daily Mile

In October 2020, two Hertfordshire schools were visited by ITV to be filmed as part of a national promotion of The Daily Mile. Broom Barns Primary School in Stevenage and Cherry Tree Primary in Watford showcased their daily miles in beautiful weather, and were aired on ITV Anglia and ITV London respectively.
