    looking for some feedback on the use of running initiatives within schools please everyone.

    Alot of feedback ive had from teachers has been children return back to unruly and hyper.

    Could fellow teachers share their views on this?

    Thank you

    We do it and I've noticed the opposite and think it's good to burn off a bit of energy. I'm quite motivated to do it as PE lead and my children buy into it. Everyone really needs to push it if it's going to work. In hindsight I may have tried a more varied form of 15 minute exercise type thing as running really isn't everyone's thing and some children do get bored with it.

    My old school had daily mile and the children loved it. I did have to set a few ground rules and remind them that it wasn't a race or competition. Plus it got me out of a few learning walks along the way
