At Cherbourg Primary we believe that everyone should be able to overcome barriers to success, sometimes with a bit of help and always with some good motivation.
Girls and women in sport are often held back by barriers made from:
- lower expectations
- an emphasis on how they look and not what they can do
- poor self-belief
- concerns about how others see them
- less media interest in their achievements
Cherbourg’s ‘This Girl Does’ campaign is our way of showing our girls that they can do everything equally as well as boys, whilst encouraging our boys to keep doing well too!
