The #LETGIRLSPLAY campaign that is run by Football England to give girls the same opportunity as boys to play football, The PE team did not want to wait until 2024. Lets do it now.
We set up a football pitch for girls only on the playground, with over 30 girls playing each day.
We run girls only football clubs, with over 60 girls attending a week, this was not enough, we want girls to enjoy football outside of school as well, we set up a partnership with Burnham Junior Wildcats, working with Tim Croker who is a brilliant coach, we have over 20 girls each week training and playing competitive matches.
We worked with SSSN and ran Disney Shooting Stars to engage more girls to play.
