Here at The PESSN we take great pride in our SEND PE and sports provision. We have a highly skilled team working with Special Educational Needs and Disability children across the borough. We run many successful SEND sporting events and festivals across the academic year. Our full member schools benefit from tailored SEND CPD support as well as various programmes run through the year delivered in schools.
The Network also delivers in school programmes, teaching PE and activities tailored to the SEND students to ensure they are accessing PE in the same way as mainstream students across the borough.
SEND PE SUPPORT IN SCHOOLS.
The programme consists of the Network working in school for 6 – 8 weeks, all SEND students are brought together with their support staff and one to ones.
We deliver lessons that demonstrate different ways for the students to access as much as possible focusing on agility, balance and co-ordination as well as movement patterns. Supporting students with social skills such as listening skills, waiting, sharing, individual work, and focus is also part of the lessons.
We gradually hand over the lessons for the school to continue to run and revisit through the year to give extra support and ideas.
The programme has been very successful with student’s attainment and helping them with accessing class PE.
Our calendar includes many inclusive competitions across London, we organise students to represent Southwark and we work with great organisations such as Southwark Council, Panathlon, NHS, Cambridge House, Sport England, Youth Games, Youth Sport Trust.
