Lead Inclusion Schools

YST Lead Inclusion Schools
A network of 60 YST Lead Inclusion Schools from across England have been established, each selected for their recognised expertise in engaging young people with Special Educational Needs/Disability (SEND) to participate, compete and lead through PE and School Sport.

What is a Lead Inclusion School?

Lead Inclusion Schools are inclusion champions and are visionaries for what high quality, meaningful and inclusive PE and school sport should look like for every child. They work to empower teachers to be more inclusive in their practice, provide meaningful competition and competition pathways for young people, raising their aspirations and providing inclusive leadership opportunities.

This network forms part of the Youth Sport Trust's ongoing commitment to equality and diversity. Through our work we strive to ensure that every young person has the opportunity to participate in high quality PE and sport, regardless of their background, ethnicity, gender, ability or indeed any other personal characteristic. To find out more, including the opportunity to read our Diversity Action Plan, Equality and Diversity Policy, and the personal commitment of YST's Chief Executive, Ali Oliver, please click here.
