They take their duties seriously and report to Mrs Armitage.

Total Distance Covered

8346 miles! That is the total so far that our school as covered since the start of the Golden Mile. We planned to run the same distance as London to Rio in Rio for the next Olympic Games but we have done better than that.


We have run all the way to the South China Sea.


Or all the way to Cape Town in South Africa.


Or all the way to Australia.



Our Golden Mile Monitors are now looking for the best class over the next two weeks - the competition will last until Sports Relief Day and we have a brilliant super learning prize for the best three classes from each phase.

Baseline Tests

As part of our Golden Miles we have undertaken a baseline assessment of every child in the school. We plan to see how much they have improved by tracking their progress across the school year. Each child in KS1 had to run for 3 minutes; KS2 ran for 4 minutes. We measured the distance for each pupil. Our class totals were added up. Some pupils ran continuously and others stopped for a rest at times. We recorded all of this information. We found that each child in Mrs McGettrick and Mrs McGovern's class on average ran over 600m in their 4 minutes. At KS1 Mrs Armitages were the top class with 450m on average. Watch this space for the progress times and distances.

They will also make sure our totals are fair and accurate.

Our LKS2 Golden Milers met with the Waverley Governing Body to tell them about the benefits of regular running. They told them how Mrs Armitage had set up the challenge with Premier Sports to increase our activity levels.


Julie Darby was amazed at how many miles our pupils had done in total whilst Susan Bell scrutinised the data.


Colin Lofthouse is our LA Achievement Partner - he was given a thorough briefing by one of our athletes.

Our Chair of Governors is Angela Tinning - she was interested in the certificates that the pupils receive.


Wendy Wills and Jayne Lickess were keen to question the pupils on why they enjoy running.


The pupils will feature in the GB meetings each term so that their voice is heard.


Well done the Golden Milers.
