Inclusive Health Check
The Inclusive Health Check is a self-review tool available to School Games registered schools, School Games Organisers (SGOs), and Local Organising Committees (LOCs) on an annual basis. It allows its users to improve best practice, access key resources, and develop an action plan. More than 10,000 Inclusive Health Checks were completed during the 2017/18 academic year.
Playing Unified - Specific Inclusive Sport Formats
The Youth Sport Trust currently work with a wide range of National Governing Bodies of Sport (NGBs) to provide detailed sport formats for use across intra and inter-school competitions. Whilst all these sport formats are designed to be fully inclusive, including methods of adapting competitions to make them easier or more challenging, there are also some sports which provide additional formats specific to inclusion. These sports are...
- Sitting Volleyball
- Table Tennis
National Disability Sport Organisations
We are delighted to be working with eight National Disability Sports Organisations (NDSOs) to help more people get active.
There are eight NDSOs as recognised by the English Federation of Disability Sport. They are: British Blind Sport, Cerebral Palsy Sport, Dwarf Sports Association UK, LimbPower, Mencap, Special Olympics Great Britain, UK Deaf Sport and WheelPower.
They provide expert advice, support and opportunities for people of all ages with specific impairments to take part in sport and exercise. From local have-a-go sessions to regional competitions and much more, the NDSOs can help to be more active and find a sport or activity you enjoy.
For more information about young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and the inclusive nature of the School Games please visit the School Games website.
