This box aims to provide students with an introduction and insight into inclusive sport, from both a theoretical and practical perspective. It aims to educate young people on important key terms such as ‘inclusion’ and ‘disability’ alongside an awareness of the barriers to sport for some individuals.
The session also aims to provide young people with a brief history of the Paralympic games and the effect of the games on para-athletes. It then allows students to experience some of these sports themselves, exercising an inclusive environment and promoting sport for all.
This box also has links to the KS4 national curriculum.
Approximately 1-1.5 hours including the theory lesson and one practical activity.
Activities can be individually selected for very short timeframes, but we would recommend completing the theory lesson, combined with 1-2 practical sessions so that students can experience inclusive sport.
Practical session plan
Definition match up card packs
(Once you select your chosen practical activity, we will include the relevant equipment).
A classroom with access to a smartboard is required for the theory lesson. Either a sports hall or outdoor facilities will be suitable for the practical session.
