Inclusion Lead School Newsletter

November 2021


Welcome to your November Newsletter. We hope you had a restful half term.

In this month’s edition you will find some save the dates for networking opportunities and a week of free CPD, updates on school payments and links the Top Sportsability toolkit.


Step into Sport

All schools should have now been allocated their Athlete Mentor for Step into Sport. We wanted to remind you that we ideally want all young role model sessions booked in before the Christmas break and all Step into Sport events done by the end of March. More information on Step into Sport can be found on our website here. If you do have any queries with this, please contact Roshni.

Save the Dates

  • Optional Lead Inclusion School Networking opportunity

Could you all please save the afternoon/evening of the 02 March 2022 (the day before the YST Conference) if possible as we are hoping to bring the Lead Schools network together for a networking dinner. More details to follow.

  • Inclusive Live week

A free week of virtual CPD will be available to you and all schools across the country between 7-11 February 2022. This will include recorded and live sessions all discussing inclusive PE and school sport.

  • June Virtual Lead Schools Network Conference

After last year’s successful Lead School Networking session in June, we have decided to bring it back this year. Please save your lunchtime and after school slots for Wednesday 15 June 2022. More information on the sessions will be released closer to the time.

Termly Data Collection

Termly data collection for the Autumn term is coming between the 22 November – 19 December. In preparation for the window you’ll find a copy of the termly data collection questions on the OneDrive.


School Payment

By December you should expect to receive half of your inclusion school payment along with any payments for any innovation projects you are part of. If you do need a break down of the payments, please email Roshni.
