The New Golden Mile Track
By Mr Cowles, PE Lead
Having used the Golden Mile scheme for two years, we decided as a school that it would be beneficial to all to expand the area in which children could perform the activity.
The field is the biggest space we have at the school and as a result of bad weather throughout the year, it is often unusable for activities like running. Therefore, having a track that follows the perimeter of the field means children are given a greater opportunity to take part in the Golden Mile.
It is an all-weather track and has been fitted at ground level to create an aesthetically pleasing look. We believe it will not only support but enhance the love of sport for all children at the school. Who knows? We could have the next Paula Radcliffe running around our track as speak!
