Saracens go ALL INCLUSIVE in Brent
Pupils from the Brent School Sports Partnership have been going all inclusive with sport!
On Tuesday 9th July, 75 pupils from across Brent North and South took part in the second inclusion festival this school year. 6 different sports were played including bocce, seated volleyball, table cricket, new age curling, zone hockey and bench ball, all led by a team of 28 sports leaders from Kingsbury High school
“A fantastic opportunity to bring together inclusive sport and sport leadership into one day, and good to see so many smiling faces playing sport”
Chris Gibson – Partnership Development Manger Kingsbury High School
The Saracens Sport Foundation has been working closely with the Brent School Sports Partnership providing a sport inclusion project in primary and secondary schools within North & South Brent over June and July.
The sessions have been aimed at both girls and boys aged 10+ that have educational needs and/or are low on confidence or ability. By providing a diverse range of sessions, the Saracens Community coaches have offered a “come try it” hour at various times and days throughout the week consisting of multi sports and team games.
10 Primary schools, 3 Secondary schools and 2 SEN schools have been offered these sessions which has progressed into a 6 week after school club that is open to both primary and secondary school pupils.
