By Premier League Primary Stars · Wed 29 May 2024

The Premier League has teamed up with the BBC and ParalympicsGB to launch Super Movers for Every Body, using the inspiration of top-flight footballers and talented athletes to engage with disabled children and those with special educational needs in sport and physical activity.

Currently, 1.5 million children in England have special educational needs or are disabled, but only one in four disabled children take part in physical activity at school. Super Movers for Every Body is designed to tackle this issue and get everybody moving.

Primary school teachers across the UK are also able to register for a free Super Movers for Every Body equipment pack, funded by the Premier League, to help them deliver inclusive sports activity for all students aged five to 11. These packs contain a range of equipment including audio balls and foam javelins, plus resource cards designed to facilitate various fun activities, including Blind Football, Para athletics and Boccia, a target ball sport which tests both muscle control and accuracy. 

“It’s all about ensuring no child misses out on PE and sport in schools, whether they are disabled or non-disabled. Giving teachers and children the confidence, skills and knowledge they need to ensure nobody is left out is so important to me. The equipment packs and online resources will empower teachers to introduce new sports to children during both the school term and summer holidays.” - Hannah Cockroft, Super Movers ambassador and seven-time Paralympic champion.

“Super Movers for Every Body complements our successful Premier League Primary Stars programme. By providing over 3,000 inclusive equipment packs, we aim to break down potential barriers to participation and inspire children to try fun new sports that help them build connections, embrace each other’s differences and develop a life-long love of being active.” - Clare Sumner, Chief Policy and Corporate Affairs Officer at the Premier League.

To apply for an inclusive PE equipment pack and explore all the free resources on offer, head to the Super Movers for Every Body website. Schools have until 7 June 2024 to register and if successful will receive their pack from September 2024, the start of the next school year.
