London 2012 was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to inspire a generation to get involved in sport and the government has committed to encouraging physical activity from an early age. In March 2013, the Government announced dedicated funding to improve the quality of PE and sports provision in every primary school in England.
We believe that high quality sports provision for all should be the baseline. While there are many examples of good practice of inclusive education we recognise that some schools may need advice, guidance and help with practical solutions.
We can help schools to ensure all pupils including those with a disability can get fully involved in PE and school sport. We can offer:
- Curriculum support – including the delivery of fully inclusive PE sessions, lunchtime or after-school clubs
- Staff support and training – informal sessions on making sport inclusive and fun; mentoring non-PE staff to deliver physical activity in an inclusive manner
- Access to accredited CPD – in disability sport for those staff who wish to further develop their skills
- Competitive opportunities – our DSY Active Events programme offers participation opportunities for disabled children throughout the school year including swimming, athletics, boccia, football
- Performance opportunities – for talented disabled children to progress to regional and national competition
- Loan of equipment – access to a wide-ranging of sports equipment to promote inclusion along with instructions
Contact us to discuss your needs and find out how we can help.

Support to special schools
‘DSY has been a fantastic help to all the staff and students at Fairfield School. Without their specialist knowledge, help and support our sports programme in school would not be what it is. They provide, training, a fantastic inter-school competition programme, allowing us to network with other special schools and sports organisations and keep up to date with what is happening in the disability sports world. We need them to keep the funding which will allow their dedicated staff team to continue this invaluable work.’
