Active Schools is a sportscotland led programme designed to encourage children and young people to get active and stay active. sportscotland works in partnership with local authorities and associated partners – who have all committed to Active Schools through to 2015.
On the ground, a network of managers and coordinators work within every local authority area to increase the number of good quality opportunities for children and young people to get active.
Over the next four years our goal is to ensure there are more and higher quality opportunities to participate in sport within schools and that these opportunities are well connected to and supported by other local and national partners.
Active Schools Network will increase activity levels of children and young people by:
- Ensuring there are more and higher quality opportunities to participate in sport within schools.
- Increasing capacity through the recruitment and support of volunteers to deliver the activity sessions in schools.
- Motivating and inspiring young people to participate in sport.
