Lead Inclusion Schools

There are 52 Youth Sport Trust Lead Inclusion Schools across England who have been selected for their recognised expertise in engaging young people with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND) to participate, compete and lead through PE, physical activity and school sport.


Lead Inclusion Schools are inclusion champions and 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 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 visit our equality, diversity and inclusion page.
