Sports Premium

Promoting a healthy and active lifestyle is incredibly important at Parklands Primary School, as we recognise the impact it has on pupils well-being and confidence. As a school, we are committed to using the Government’s Sports Premium in the following ways:

  • To enhance the quality of our sport curriculum and increase the variety of sporting activities on offer to our pupils
  • To build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years
  • To increase pupil participation in the competitive sport ensuring more pupils take part in more events.

Sports Funding 2021 2022


Due to the impact of Covid-19 and the closure of schools from March 2020 on Year 6 and swimming, we do not have up-to-date figures for proportions of  Year 6 swimming ability in 2020-21.

Our most recent figures show the following proportions.

Percentage of pupils who can:

  • swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres – 93%
  • use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke] – 82%
  • perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations – 100% of pupils understand ways that they can perform safe self-rescue.

Competitive sport :

As a school and as a Trust, we firmly believe that competitive sport is an important part of school life as it builds resilience and enables children to celebrate non-academic success.

Covid-19 has hugely impacted on our usual year-round focus on competition, but this year we plan to reopen our Trust-wide competitions.

“Through rich and varied opportunities…all our pupils will have the chance to grow their confidence…”
