This Girl Can
This Girl Can is a national campaign developed by Sport England and a wide range of partnership organisations. It’s a celebration of active women up and down the country who are doing their thing no matter how well they do it, how they look or even how red their face gets.
National research reveals a huge difference in the number of men and women playing sport. And it’s not because females don’t want to get active. Millions of women and girls are afraid to exercise because of fear of judgment.
Here at Whiston Worrygoose, we have been using the campaign throughout the school in 2017. We have seen the the number of girls participating in sports increasing dramatically in both individual and team sports due to this new programme. We have been working closely with Sheffield University Medical School to raise aspiration and have even taken our girls to the University of Sheffield for a visit!
