Inclusion 2024 Live is a week-long celebration organised and delivered by the Youth Sport Trust. The week will highlight the importance of SEND inclusion, importance of pupil voice and transforming perceptions, sharing good practice within an educational setting and also hosts an exciting youth panel discussion.
It aims to support the school workforce and those working in educational/grassroots sport settings. Over the course of the week, the Youth Sport Trust will share lots of free CPD and tools to enable you to increase opportunities for disabled young people to enjoy PE, school sport and physical activity in your setting.
Chris Smith, the Youth Sport Trust’s Development Manager for Inclusion spoke about the week:
“Inclusion 2024 Live week is a fantastic opportunity to learn something new and feel more confident in your knowledge about supporting young people with SEND to access PE, school sport and physical activity. One third of disabled children take part in less than 30 minutes of sport and physical activity per day and disabled children’s activity levels decrease significantly as they get older. “Sadly, disabled children are also twice as likely to be lonely than their non-disabled peers and more likely to feel they have no one to talk to, feel left out and alone. We are hearing from National Governing Bodies of Sport and community sports clubs how children with SEND are not returning to sport after the pandemic, and examples of families having to withdraw their children from such provision due to costs of travel or specialist equipment that is needed. This is why it is so important we offer as many touchpoints with sport, physical activity and play as possible through school settings. I look forwards to another great week of Inclusion 2024 Live and hope you can join us.”
