The Daily Mile

A formal launch event for The Daily Mile initiative took place in front of pupils from 10 schools.

The Daily Mile is a unique programme which sees primary school children (and their teachers) walking, jogging and running one mile, every single day. The aim is to increase attainment in schools, help with concentration, get people more active and reduce levels of childhood obesity.

The council’s public health team held the formal launch in October at Godolphin Infant School, which involved an engaging presentation from the Slough pioneers for The Daily Mile, Priory School.

If you or your school would like to be involved, or simply want more information, email

You can follow the public health team on Twitter @SloughPH or visit the council's website to find out more about the initiative.  

Join the team in helping make every Slough child active, every day. #TheDailyMile
