Health Benefits

Golden Mile encourages regular physical activity habits across the week and carries the message from the department of health that children should engage in regular daily physical activity. That’s why the Golden Mile is such a great product as is ALL YEAR ROUND which promotes.

Golden Mile in your school allows the opportunity for pupils to enjoy being physically active, within the constraints of other pressures such as school learning time. 

Regular physical activity is associated with numerous health benefits for Children. This includes reduced body fat and the promotion of healthy weight, enhanced bone and cardio-metabolic health, and will prove to enhanced concentration levels and psychological well-being in your classrooms.

What’s great about the Golden Mile is we’ll help your pupils meet the new UK physical activity guidelines have recently been published by the Government:

  • All children should engage in moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity for at least 60 minutes and up to several hours every day.
  • Vigorous intensity activities, including those that strengthen muscle and bone, should be incorporated at least three days a week.
  • All children should minimise the amount of time spent being sedentary (sitting) for extended periods. By the time children start school, however, they are develop mentally ready to benefit from more intensive activity, over shorter periods, so a daily minimum of 60 minutes of moderate intensity activity is recommended.

The government has backed the Golden Mile

“Running or walking regularly is not only good for children’s health, it gives them more energy throughout the day and can inspire more to take up sport for life. If children learn to love being active as they grow up then they’re also more likely to take those good habits through to adulthood. My congratulations to the Golden Mile initiative” 

Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, Ben Bradshaw
