How we safely anonymise your data

who we’re working with

We collaborate with schools and clubs across the UK to deliver safer sport.

“It has been a pleasure for our school to be involved with the work of Podium Analytics over the last year. A project that aims to help reduce the incidence of injury in school sport links closely with Canford’s sport and wellbeing vision and we look forward to together helping create a safer future for all pupils.”

How much does SportSmart cost?

SportSmart is fully funded and delivered at no cost to schools and clubs.

Who is SportSmart for?

SportSmart has been designed with coaches and PE teachers in mind, to help you deliver safer sport, PE and physical activity. The SportSmart platform includes functionality for first aiders and medical professionals.

How do I get involved?

To sign your school or club up to the SportSmart injury management platform, simply complete this form or email us at and the team will be in touch to help you get up and running in three easy steps.

What do we do with player data?

Looking after your data is a key part of SportSmart. No named data collected through the app will be used without permission. For our broader landscape research, all data has certain information removed meaning that no individual, school or club, coach or teacher or parent/carer is identifiable. This process is called anonymisation.

Any specific research project will always require consent. If a school or club chooses to be involved in a specific research project, they will need to contact the parent/carer of player or, if over 18 the player themselves, directly and ask them if they are happy to participate. Only the data of those who have consented will be used for that specific project.

Each individual project will require its own explicit consent and a participant can remove that consent at any time by contacting

Where is the data stored?

The data collected through  SportSmart is stored in Podium’s secure data lake. To find out more, click here

Can parents/carers and players see the information being recorded?

At the moment, information recorded in the injury management platform can only be accessed by school and club staff.

We are in the process of developing a player and parent/carer portal. This will allow parents/carers and over 18s to view any relevant incident reports and sessions quickly and easily.

How do I get involved in research projects?

The SportSmart team will share regular updates of new research projects that are underway. If your organisation is interested in taking part, you will be able to volunteer directly. The team will then be in touch with further details.
