My PB Resources for alternative provision schools - FREE for Dorset School Games Schools
The My Personal Best Pupil Referrals Unit (PRU) Innovation project is funded through the Department for Education Inclusion 2024 grant in order to develop and support Pupil Referral Units in developing life skills in their young people.
The project aims to support staff and SLT to embed life skills, connect physical activity and character development, showing how being active can positively affect confidence, resilience and social interaction.
Schools will benefit from training, be-spoke resources and become part of a wider community of practice with other PRU's and Alternative Provisions nationally
We have been fortunate enough to secure access to a free trial of the My PB resource for alternative provision schools in Dorset, supported by the national author and lead tutor to lead schools through the programme and orientate schools in the new year

Tools to support an inclusive approach to Physical Education and Movement
All About Autism E-Learning
We know there are a number of key barriers to inclusion in PE and Sport for young people with autism that collectively our teachers and sports professionals should consider.
These are addressed in an exciting new E-Learning 'All about Autism' resource. Developed by the Youth Sport Trust and endorsed by the National Autistic Society.
Participants will learn specific skills in Language and Communication, Social Interaction, and Sensory Processing.
Having completed the course (All About Autism E-Learning), it has made me think about individuals in each year group and how simple things such as change of setting, group sizes, noise levels etc can have an impact on the child's mood/learning. I now feel that I am able to help those individuals that may have struggled with some elements and can adapt the sessions to suit all.
The course itself was very simple, you could drop in and out at any time and the videos really made me think about different situations in our school.
TOP Sportsability is a free online resource for schools offering practical advice for teachers, learning sup-port staff and other sports practitioners including school coaching companies, it consists of video clips and downloadable content showing ideas and strategies which will help staff adapt their lessons and sessions.
The resource is easy to use and divided into three sections which are:
- To provide physical activity and sport options for young people with support needs
- To create a vehicle for the inclusion of disabled and non-disabled young people together
- To provide a basic introduction to a wide range of sports and activities in support of the School Games programme
You will need to use the code: YSTINCLUSION13
The Top Sportsability resource has been incredibly helpful in improving staff confidence, skills and knowledge in the delivery of inclusive PE. Our PE team use the resources to ensure that all of our students are included in every PE lesson and that we are challenging and progressing all students within curriculum PE.
Inclusive Health Check
The Schools Inclusive Health Check (IHC) Is a quick and simple resource that school staff can use to assess their inclusive provision in PE and school sport.
Once completed school staff receive a bespoke action plan which links resources and opportunities which forms part of the school's approach to become a more inclusive.
The action plan and process has received positive feedback from Ofsted as it enables schools to demonstrate clear understanding and planning for an Inclusive PE provision.
Schools can access the IHC from their School games dashboards.
