The Daily Mile - Every Child, Every Day
Elaine Wyllie is the former headteacher of St Ninians Primary School, Stirling, where she first introduced The Daily Mile. A passionate and fresh-thinking educator, Elaine introduced the initiative in response to observations by volunteers that the pupils weren’t fit. It was a huge success, improving pupils’ concentration, mood and relationships as well as their fitness – a whole health and wellbeing package. This led to Elaine being named UK Teacher of the Year at the Pride of Britain awards 2015 and, in 2016, she was awarded an honorary Master of Arts by the University of Stirling.
