Sports Premium

The provision of sport is really important to us at Uplands.

We have been using our sports grant to further improve the provision in our school. This year we have introduced a sports after school club for each day of the week including Football, Cricket, Hockey and Netball. We employ a qualified coach to run these clubs. We have also ran special clubs for those identified as having a particular talent e.g. Basketball.

On this page is a range of information about how we are spending our sports premium grant. You will find lots of stories at the bottom of the page in relation to sports including the Year 2 football league!

Listen to one of our children talk about our after school sports clubs below:

We survey our children about the clubs they attend to gain feedback and improve the impact of our spending. Here are some of the survey results below:


My children thoroughly enjoy kick rounders. They really look forward to it every week. They really like Hollie and I think it has really helped my son settle in at Uplands.
