At the annual PE Conference for primary PE coordinators INCLUSION was as ever high on the agenda. Delegates attended a mix of both practical and network sessions. Network sessions varied from ‘The role of the PE Coordinator’ through to learning about new initiatives e.g. Quality Start within the county. The practical sessions, gym, dance, tennis, table tennis, basketball all touched on how the teacher would include all abilities and in addition there was a session specifically for inclusion with ‘seated Volleyball’ being the main sport looked at.
Will Bayley Paralympic Medallist in Table TennIs [Gold in Rio and Silver in LONDON 2012] was present throughout the day and shared a number of his inspirational stories with the delegates. He is pictured above in front of the new SWB banner!
