Active Schools is a sportscotland led programme designed to encourage children and young people to get active and stay active.
The Active Schools team in South Lanarkshire aim to provide more and higher quality opportunities to participate in sport within schools and strengthen partnerships with clubs and other community organisations to support ‘pathways’ for pupils to continue their participation in sport outwith school. We aim to 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.
