The government makes it clear that ALL children are entitled to participate in PE lessons at school in the UK. Education should be inclusive and where appropriate SEND pupils must be included in the same lessons as their peers even if some form of adaption is required for them to gain access to the activities. This is the challenge, as for PE to be really inclusive the variety of activities needs to reflect the abilities of all pupils. Activities must be wide-ranging enough to cater for everyone while still presenting a challenge.
