Sports campaigns

This Girl Can

Dickens Heath School are proud to be part of the ‘This Girl Can’ campaign. It is a national campaign developed by Sport England and a wide range of partnership organisations. It’s a celebration of active women up and down the country who are doing their thing no matter how well they do it, how they look or even how red their face gets.



At Dickens Heath we run a weekly lunch time Change4life club with the support of our year 5 and 6 students. The Change4life sport club is targeted at the current gap in provision between fundamental movement and skill development at age 4 to 7.


They take the principals and specific skills from a range of Olympic and Paralympic sports and place them in a fun, vibrant and exciting activity club.


Primary clubs capture the essence of the sports without directly delivering sport specific content, and are grouped under three multi sport themes:

  1. Adventure
  2. Creative
  3. Target
