School Sport Survey 2022

The results of a major survey conducted by Sport Wales have emphasised the need for sporting activities to be made more appealing, suitable and welcoming for children and young people in Wales.

The 2022 School Sport Survey, which captured the views of more than 116,000 pupils aged between 7 and 16, has found that over a third of pupils aren’t doing any frequent organised activity outside of their PE lessons. The figure has risen from 28% to an alarming 36% since the survey was last undertaken in 2018.

The survey results also show that long-term inequalities in sports participation remain. Boys are more active than girls, while children with disabilities, impairments or learning difficulties are still doing less.
