Lead Inclusion County Update Term 1 2022
Inclusive Health Check
Now is a great time to complete the all new Inclusive health check found on your School Games dashboard. Updated for 2022-23, this self audit tool covers diversity, equality and SEND to check and challenge your current practice and opportunities for all young people.
Why not capitalise and use it as part of your PE, school sport and physical activity action planning for this academic year and as a tool to inform and improve practice whilst prompting further discussions with your staff team.
Access it by logging in to Your School Games - Your School Games

We know that a positive experience in PE and school sport is essential to shape every child’s life-long participation. It can affect how we feel about being active for the rest of our lives.
Data suggests not all young disabled people (often referred to in education settings as special educational needs or disabilities - SEND) are fully included in PE.
Sometimes finding the best resources and support to improve your inclusive practice can be a challenge. So, we want to help you to access the most relevant information.
You can access the very latest in research, insight and resources through our friends at Activtiy Alliance. In collaboration with the Youth Sport Trust, this is a great place to find information to make your practice fully inclusive.

Without the right approach, taking part in sport can sometimes be a passive experience for people with complex disabilities. Sensory Football reimagines the way football is delivered, allowing people with complex disabilities to actively participate in a meaningful way, which allows them to gain all the same benefits of football as anyone else.
By working on adapting football activities and focusing on each participant’s individual outcomes, we can ensure football is person-centered and meaningful for everyone.

Sense Active is part of the national disability charity, Sense. The Sense Active team is currently funded by Sport England to help get more disabled people active through their “Sense Active Together” project.
