Highfurlong School is the lead inclusion school for Lancashire for the Youth Sport Trust . We work in partnership with Blackpool Council to deliver Project Ability .

There are 50 Youth Sport Trust Lead Inclusion Schools across England who have been selected for their recognised expertise in engaging young people with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND) to participate, compete and lead through PE, physical activity and school sport.

Lead Inclusion Schools are inclusion champions and visionaries for what high quality, meaningful and inclusive PE and school sport should look like for every child. They work to empower teachers to be more inclusive in their practice, provide meaningful competition and competition pathways for young people, raising their aspirations and providing inclusive leadership opportunities.

Highfurlong School ensures that all students are given the opportunity to take part in sport at all levels. We have been recognised for high quality PE, to an outstanding level, through the Youth Sport Trust Assessment Tool for the School Games Pathway. Please go to your school games mark for more information. We have also been awarded the Platinum award in 2019 and also the Youth Sport Trust Quality Mark.
