Barclays #LETGIRLSPLAY

 

Since 2023 Downe Manor has joined the England Football team and Barclays putting on the biggest EVER annual football session for girls. By 2024, The FA’s and Barclays ambition is for girls to have the same football opportunities as boys in schools and clubs. #LetGirlsPlay is a campaign to drive influence and change perceptions, showing that football can and should be played by girls. It is bringing together a growing community of people of all genders, ages and backgrounds who want to champion equal access for girls, helping create independent, resilient young girls who will be a force for good in all local communities. We celebrate our annual #LetGirlsPlay day at Downe Manor with every single girl in the school playing football! The girl take part in dribbling drills and beat the goalie teacher! The boys aren’t left out and take on the role of coaching the girls, offering support and personalised feedback. The day is always super successful and the children really enjoy themselves.
