For the attention of Headteachers, Heads of PE and PE teachers
We have some fantastic girls’ football teams at Broadway Academy.
As Headteacher Ambassador for the Youth Sports Trust, I would like to bring to your attention a wonderful opportunity to involve girls in football.
With the Women’s World Cup kicking off, I wanted to remind you about how your school can get involved.
In collaboration with the FA, the Youth Sport Trust has created some exciting, free of charge resources themed around England’s Lionesses, which can be used throughout your whole school. The resources, for both primary and secondary, cover curriculum areas including English, Maths and History as well as PE, with each corresponding to one or more of the Lionesses’ values. They are also linked to young people’s personal development. Please have a look at the flyer attached, which shows the fantastic range of content there is.
This is a brilliant opportunity to use the power of a major sporting event to inspire pupils up and down the country and create a swell of support for our national team. The resources can be used at any time during the event, which runs from 7th June to 7th July, so please go online and get involved.
It is easy to sign up and download the resources at www.girlsfootballinschools.org.
