The Active Schools team has been working remotely to support our pupils, volunteers, schools, clubs, and partners across the sport and physical activity network. We will continue to use our website, Glow, twitter, and Facebook channels to provide information to schools, pupils/partners, and our volunteers.
Recovery Planning - Path to Participation
Active Schools is working with Schools and Education to support the re-start of outdoor sport and physical activity clubs in schools. We are hoping to re-start extra-curricular sports after the October Holidays on a phased return. We understand that getting schools back up and running is the priority and there may be other factors that may effect the re-start of sports clubs, such as staggered starts/finish times and cleaning schedules. We will work with schools and the Children and Families Service to review the situation and provide further updates.
Supporting Schools, Coaches, and Volunteers
In preparation for the re-start of school sport in our schools, Dundee Active Schools have created an infographic (path to participation) road map for the safe return of sports clubs. We have also provided some guidance for schools, coaches/volunteers, and parents/participants. Please download the guidance below. In addition to this guidance, we will follow all National Governing Body Guidance inline with the Scottish Government phases.
Over the coming months, we will work with our 600 volunteers, teachers, and club coaches to support them back into sport. We will provide online training, risk assessments, and ongoing support with the aim of keeping everyone safe.
Local Community Sports Clubs and Partners
Any local sports clubs or partners looking to contact schools should contact their Active Schools Co-ordinator in the first instance. Please click here for contact infromation.
We're here to help young people feel healthy, happy, and confident through the provision of fun and fulfilling school sports clubs, competitions, leadership programs, and holiday camps and will endeavor to set up opportunities when it is safe to do so.
Guidance documents for schools have been sent out to all schools.
