Changing the Game for Girls

The Youth Sport Trust report Getting Girls Active reveals findings from a successful, one-year pilot programme that boosted the confidence and body attitudes of the participants by engaging them in the decision-making process and incorporating their feedback into the physical education programmes in which they took part.

20 schools were involved and reported greatly improved responses to PE from girls, attributed to the fact that they were consulted on their experiences in PE and sport and their needs were accounted for accordingly.
