All Inclusive PE Training


Sainsbury's Active Kids For All Inclusive PE Training was designed to provide training and resources to support teachers, trainee teachers and school staff to provide a high-quality PE curriculum for all young people.

What we did

These three-hour workshops equipped qualified and trainee primary and secondary teachers with tools and practical ideas to fully include all young people in curriculum PE and ensure that they are appropriately challenged and able to show rapid and sustained progress.

The programme was established through investment from Sainsbury's and was delivered across the UK through a partnership between Activity Alliance, Disability Sport Northern Ireland, Disability Sport Wales, and Scottish Disability Sport, supported by the British Paralympic Association and the Youth Sport Trust.

It explored barriers to engagement and inclusion and strategies to overcome these, including the use of STEP (Space, Task, Equipment and People) and the inclusion spectrum. Participants also received access to exclusive online resources and were able to cascade their training to others in their school.

It was led by expert practitioners and involved both face-to-face and virtual workshops which combined theory, discussion and practical. The workshop was supported by interactive online resources which were specially designed to further improve confidence, skills and knowledge in the delivery of inclusive PE.

Through the workshop and resources, participants were asked to:

  • Consider their current PE provision in the context of the learner's journey
  • Establish how and why some young people may be disengaged from PE
  • Identify practical ideas to ensure all learners are included and making progress
  • Understand effective communication
  • Learn about other sources of relevant information.

Teachers who attended reported a 52% increase in their confidence to deliver high quality PE for all of their students.
