Active Schools

What is Active Schools?

Active Schools is a national programme in partnership with sportscotland with the aim of providing 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.

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 schools for the last 13 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.

How can I help or get involved?

Volunteers are at the heart of the work in Active Schools.  Without their support, the majority of activities would not happen.  There are over 800 people, including parents, teachers, support staff, community coaches, senior pupils and young primary leaders, who kindly give up their time to help across a range of sports and activities.

  • Are you interested in sport and physical activity?
  • Would you like to help make a difference?
  • Are you full of enthusiasm and energy?
  • Do you have an hour to spare a week?
  • Do you enjoy working with young people?
  • Would you be willing to participate in local training?

Active Schools will provide on-going guidance and support and in return volunteers will gain a high quality and rewarding volunteer experience.
