Sports at Southville Primary School

The Prime Minister welcomes the lionesses to Downing Street

Lessons with the Lionesses

Southville Primary School had the priviledge of being invited to bring 25 of our girls to Downing Street on the 8th March for the #LetGirlsPlay campaign. Not only did they get to meet the prime minister, but they got to meet three of the Lionesses (England Woman's Football team) Beth Mead, Jill Scott and Ellen White.

The campaign has been fighting for equal access to sport for young girls in school, and has resulted in the government pledging to equal access in formal lessons and extracurricular sessions, and for each child to have a minimum of two hours of PE per week. The full package of support for schools from the Government includes more than £600 million over the next two years to improve the quality of PE and sports in primary schools.
