Olympian Jake Wightman encourages pupils to get active

Heathmere was one of hundreds of schools to take part in last year’s Mini London Marathon in schools, which saw an incredible 500,000 children registered to take part.

The TCS Mini London Marathon in schools is a challenge where pupils can run, jog, walk or wheel 2.6 miles in their schools. They can complete the distance in one go or break it up into smaller chunks.

Heathmere headteacher Emma Lewis said: “We want children in the future to be active, fit and healthy, and the TCS Mini London Marathon in schools is an excellent way to do this. It’s great that all children can take part, no matter what their ability or fitness levels – it’s a properly inclusive event that everyone can do.

“At Heathmere, we’ll be taking part because we know that good physical health helps support good mental health. And these combined mean that the children are more likely to achieve well academically.”
