Inclusive Sports

Northfield School is the Lead Inclusion School for Tees Valley working in partnership with the Youth Sport Trust.

Here at Northfield we are inclusion champions and try to promote what high quality, meaningful and inclusive PE and school sport should look like for every child. We work to empower teachers to be more inclusive in their practice, provide meaningful competition and competition pathways for young people, raise their aspirations and provide inclusive leadership opportunities.

Our School Sports Partnership work closely with other Partnerships and School Games Organisers in Tees Valley to:

  • work with others to support them to provide inclusive competition and strengthen entry and exit pathways to school games and regular competition
  • provide regular training advice and guidance for the school sport workforce on inclusive practice
  • raise aspirations and to lead the way in developing inclusive leadership through Step into Sport and Durham County leadership academy
  • promote TOPS Sportsability
