Abstract Going the EXTRA MILE with Inspiring healthy lifestyles Wigan have gone the ‘extra mile’ by not just delivering The Daily Mile in schools but also delivering their Daily Toddle to nurseries ensuring their children really do ‘Start Well’. We have found The Daily Mile not only provides teachers with a unique opportunity to assess their classes level of physical fitness but also is an enabler to inspire wider approaches for the community. With over 12,000 children and 1200 staff taking part locally, the programmes make a difference to fitness levels alongside significant improvements in resilience, behaviour, attainment, self-esteem and wellbeing of pupils, staff and families.This is about bigger picture thinking and understanding the wider sustainable impact programmes such as these have on our families resulting in why IHL started The Daily Toddle. A UK first, this gives pre-school children the chance to be more physically active and enhances the health and wellbeing of children and staff. Settings are encouraged to go even further by incorporating early morning sessions, school gate runs, walk leader awards and opportunities for embedding 30 minutes of physical activity outside the school day. “The approach taken by Wigan to introduce The Daily Mile and Toddle to schools and nurseries has been outstanding. Their fully collaborative approach, embraced by Health and Education, has worked brilliantly with the number of participating schools and nurseries rising quickly since the launch in 2016 helping to build better health for children for years to come.” Elaine Wyllie – Daily Mile Foundation
