Inclusive Workshop for Local School Pupils
PGCE and School Direct Physical Education and Dance students at the School of Sport and Service Management took part in a whole day of inclusive sport and physical activity with pupils from schools in East Sussex.
The emphasis of the day was on equity and inclusion within the secondary school physical education and dance curriculum. The day comprised of activities such as Boccia, sit-down volleyball, parachute games, new-age kurling and goalball as well as Dance activities.
The day was a challenging experience as trainee had to plan for pupils with a range of complex learning needs.
PGCE and School Direct PE route leader, Dr Gary Stidder, said: “Experiences such as these give trainee teachers of physical education and dance a great deal of confidence and enable them to provide the foundations for inclusive practice in PE and Dance, whilst enabling trainee teachers to plan and adapt activities according to different learning needs.”
