Resources for Schools
Teacher Resource Pack
We commissioned the Youth Sport Trust to create a resource for secondary schools. The resource supports teachers and girls to develop and deliver a This Girl Can campaign in their school.
The campaign recognises that friends are the greatest influencers on adolescent girls and that positive encouragement and support from their peers is the most effective way to get girls active – at school and at home. It supports girls to lead campaigns in their own school. By taking ownership of the campaign – and by creating and promoting messages that influence their peers – girls can help each other to get active, in ways that are right for them.
The school campaign is part of the national This Girl Can campaign that supports women and girls to get active.
All secondary schools in England have been sent a hard copy of the resource. Further information and copies of the resource can be downloaded here.
Studio You is a brand new video platform funded by Sport England and powered by This Girl Can, designed to support PE teachers engage teenage girls.
The platform was created and piloted with PE teachers and students from all over the country, Studio You features curriculum-linked videos led by on-screen experts covering yoga, dance, combat and more and is designed to be fun, inclusive and empowering.
