The initiative was put into place to tackle participation barriers that female students face in relation to school sport and physical activity.

Research shows that the obstacles female students face are a mix of practical and emotional pressures such as fear of judgement, lacking confidence, not having enough time, period issues and previous negative PE experiences.

The aim of the How Are You Feeling? Day was to equip pupils with some of the tools needed to recognise their own mental wellbeing, and offered practical advice for what to do when they are feeling vulnerable. Feedback from pupils and parents was very positive, and there are plans for the Cathedral and Norwich School to offer the event for other schools in Norfolk in future.
