Free PE Equipment Supports Schools Deliver Inclusive Sports Activity



Top-flight football and talented athletes aim to inspire disabled children and those with special educational needs to get involved in sport and physical activity.

 

The Premier League and ParalmpicsGB has joined forces with BBC Children’s Education to provide schools with inclusive PE equipment and resources to launch Super Movers for Every Body.

 

Currently 1.5 million children in England have special educational needs or are disabled, but only one in four disabled children take part in physical activity at school. Super Movers for Every Body is designed to tackle this issue and get everybody moving.

 

Teachers and parents can access a whole host of exciting free online curriculum-linked resources on BBC Teach. This includes Super Movers for Every Body follow-along films featuring CBBC stars, ParalympicsGB athletes and Premier League mascots, as well as other downloadable activities to get children moving. 

 

Primary school teachers across the UK are also able to register for a free Super Movers For Every Body equipment pack, funded by the Premier League, to help them deliver inclusive sports activity for all students aged five to 11. 

 

These packs contain a range of equipment and resource cards designed to facilitate various fun activities, including Blind Football, Para-athletics and Boccia.

 

The equipment packs and online resources will empower teachers, parents and caregivers to introduce new sports to children during the school term and the summer holidays, providing them with new opportunities as the build-up to the Paralympics in Paris this August gets under way. 

 

“This powerful campaign, featuring a host of ParalympicsGB stars and delivered in partnership with BBC Children’s and Education and the Premier League, will help ensure no primary school age pupil will be left on the sidelines during PE lessons,” said  David Clarke, CEO of ParalympicsGB and England’s all-time leading goal scorer in blind football. 

 

“Super Movers for Every Body will empower teachers and parents with the skills they need, and provide thousands of schools with the equipment, to deliver inclusive sporting sessions which challenge perceptions of what disabled people can do. 

 

“Equally importantly, it will also promote the power of allyship and give children a greater understanding of the benefits of creating a truly inclusive environment at an age where they will have those skills for life. 

 

“Disabled people of all ages tell us that representation plays a crucial part in breaking down barriers to participation and this is why I am so proud that these valuable resources feature a host of disabled athletes demonstrating the unique power of sport to connect us.” 



To apply for an inclusive PE equipment pack and explore all the free resources on offer, head to the Super Movers for Every Body website. Schools have until 7 June 2024 to register and if successful will receive their pack from September 2024, the start of the next school year.
