The FA Girls' Football School Partnerships - supported by Barclays

In collaboration with Barclays and the Youth Sport Trust, The FA has launched a network of partnerships between itself and schools throughout England.

Formally known as ‘The FA Girls’ Football School Partnerships – supported by Barclays,’ the goal is to build a sustainable infrastructure of schools committed to developing the girls’ game.

The FA’s focus is to help girls become more physically active with improved well-being, increased physical literacy of five to eight year-olds and help all girls develop the confidence and competence to play football at school and in a community setting.

It is hoped that The FA Girls’ Football School Partnerships – supported by Barclays will grow the women’s and girls’ football workforce in schools to sustain the growth of participation levels. It should also help make the game more inclusive for all by increasing the number of BAME, SEND and girls from low income families who are participating and enjoying football whilst at school. The FA Girls’ Football School Partnerships – supported by Barclays will aim to generate greater collaboration with local football and education providers to create a clear, coherent pathway for girls at a local level to grow and develop in and through football.

 

We believe the secret to achieving success via The FA Girls’ Football School Partnerships – supported by Barclays is being focused on five areas:

  • More girls being physically active with improved wellbeing
  • Embedding girls’ football in secondary schools
  • The growth in the women’s and girls’ football workforce
  • Making the game more inclusive for all
  • Collaboration with existing local football providers.

Our Vision

  • Every girl has equal access to football in school by 2024.
