Active Schools

The goal of Active Schools is to provide more high quality opportunities to participate in sport within schools. We also aim to ensure that these opportunities are well connected to and supported by other local, regional and national partners.

We work with Physical Education (PE) professionals to ensure better coordination between PE and school sports, and also to encourage the development of more physically active children and young people.

While our focus is sport, our activities connect to the wider landscapes of play, dance, exercise and active living – we know that a joint effort is required to deliver the health and performance related fitness our children and young people deserve.

Ten Years of Active Schools

2014 sees the Active Schools Network celebrate 10 years of providing more and higher quality opportunities for children and young people across Scotland to get involved in sport.

This video looks back over the last ten years and the impact the programme has had on children and adults across Scotland.

Active Schools with Falkirk Community Trust

Within Falkirk Community Trust we have an Active Schools Manager, seven Active Schools Coordinators (Primary) and nine Active Schools Coordinators (Secondary). The Coordinators work within their respective Primary and High Schools clusters to provide further opportunities for physical activity, sport and play.
