Active Schools is a Sportscotland led programme which aims to provide more and higher quality opportunities to take part in sport and physical activity before school, during lunchtime and after school, and to develop effective pathways between schools and sports clubs in the local community.
Active School Co-ordinators also have a key role in developing a network of volunteers to deliver activity sessions. Theses volunteers consist of teachers, parents, schools staff, students, sports coaches and senior pupils who are central to the success of Active Schools.
Young people make a valuable contribution as leaders in sport and Active Schools co-ordinators provide leadership opportunities across a range of roles and support young people throughout their leadership journey.
Active Schools has worked with Dundee schools for over 11 years providing opportunities for children and young people to get involved, and stay involved, in sport and will continue to make a significant contribution to a world class sporting system in Scotland.
