Synthesis of the case study

During the two year programme, Women in Sport established a network of 25 schools and worked with them to adapt a new approach to girls’ PE classes. During two years schools were offered help to research what their female students thought about PE and sports and what they wanted to change. We helped them to work with the girls to implement those changes, to shape PE activities and to engage their peers. In addition, the pilot project was particularly focused on the transition from primary to secondary school, where Women in Sport aimed to have a positive impact on decreasing the dropouts of girls taking part in sport and physical activity as they move schools and to sustain active lifestyles throughout their school experience.
