Webinar Duration: 57 minutes (approx.)
This webinar will provide headteachers, senior leaders, PE teachers and SENCOs with advice and practical guidance on supporting the participation of all pupils in PE lessons, including those with physical, intellectual or developmental disabilities, such as autism.
The SEND code of practice 2015 highlights the importance of including pupils with SEND ‘in all the opportunities available to other children and young people so they can achieve well’. Full access to the PE curriculum has the potential to enhance both physical and mental wellbeing, bringing opportunity not only for physical exercise, but also social interaction, collaboration and teamworking.
In this webinar, Caroline Holder, physical education advisor in primary schools with expertise as designer/leader of PE programmes, explains how the needs of pupils with wide-ranging SEND can be accommodated in primary PE lessons so that they can access the same high-quality curriculum as their peers.
