Girls on Board

Empowering children to find their own solutions

Girls on Board is an approach which helps girls, their parents and their teachers to understand the complexities and dynamics of girl friendships. The language, methods and ideas empower girls to solve their own friendship problems and recognises that they are usually the only ones who can. By empowering girls to find their own solutions, parents need worry less, schools can focus more on the curriculum and the girls learn more effectively – because they are happier.

Although originally designed with girls in mind, there are many themes relevant to both girls and boys. At Leicester Grammar Junior School we introduce the Girls on Board Approach to all pupils in Years 3 to 6.
