The Abbey Mile

The ‘Abbey Mile’ has been introduced to the children in Key Stage two at Bourne Abbey C of E Primary Academy.  Based on the ‘Daily Mile’, the children are given 15 minutes to run or jog at their own pace around the course marked on their playground.  Individual teachers can decide when to fit the mile into the school day and it is done in addition to existing PE lessons and does not replace the exercise children get while playing during playtimes.
