Inclusive Physical Education Tools

1. All About Autism All About Me.

We know there are several 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, All about Me' resource. Developed by the Youth Sport Trust and endorsed by the National Autistic Society. The resource is free to access and can be used by schools to support all young people as many without a diagnosis would also benefit.

3. 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. Participants answer questions which are designed to be thought provoking but non-judgmental. 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.
