The history and ethos of the Paralympic Movement

The history and ethos of the Paralympic Movement provides an inspiring springboard for students of all ages to engage in a number of cross-curricular subjects.

Resources for Parents and Home Educators

These resources have been developed to provide parents and home educators with learning opportunities for children from KS2 to KS3 to explore Paralympic Heritage. They include a variety of fun, interesting and educational activity sheets to download at home. We'd love to know how you get on, send us a photo of your completed activity sheet and we'll add them to our online photo gallery. Email your photos to: [email protected]

Activity sheets for other key stages are coming soon!
