What is Sainsbury’s Active Kids for All Inclusive PE?

The Sainsbury’s Active Kids for All Inclusive PE Training Programme is a training initiative designed to improve the quality of PE provision for ALL young people in mainstream schools in the UK. The course has primarily been designed to support mainstream PE teachers in including young disabled people within PE curriculum; however the principles used can be applied to a number of settings and can be of benefit to ALL young people. Course content is linked to the 2014 National Curriculum and provides useful tools to ensure that all young people have a high quality physical education experience.

What does the training involve?

This workshop is designed to help teachers embed inclusive practice in their planning, delivery and assessment within the curriculum. The training involves theory and practice to support you in having a clearer understanding of the needs of all pupils. You will also explore teaching strategies to ensure all pupils are engaged and make good progress, both of which are essential in outstanding teaching.

It is made up of both online and face to face elements. You will be supported to share material with your colleagues and you will have access to an online portal to support your continued professional development.
