Active Schools in Moray


Active schools  need you to help get ‘more children, more active, more often’! 

Active Schools is a Scottish Executive initiative, joint funded by sportscotland External website logo and the local authority, with the aim of increasing the activity levels of children by enabling the provision of high-quality, safe and sustainable physical activity opportunities for all pupils.  The Active Schools team will provide these opportunities during the formal, informal and extended curriculum as well as in the wider community.  The remit of the program is wide and includes all forms of activity: sport at the grass-roots level, active travel, outdoor adventure and the active arts.

Key Objectives

The key objectives of the program are:

  • To get children to be physically active for one hour a day, making ‘more children, more active, more often’.
  • To develop sustainable pathways and opportunities for children to develop their interests and potential.
  • To develop fully inclusive programmes so that every child in every school has access to physical activity and sporting opportunity.

Could you Help?

Cycling group

Do you have a little time to spare? 

Could you help lead activities for children?

Would you like to gain a qualification in coaching sport or leading other activities?

You don’t have to be sporty to lend a hand – just enthusiastic!   We are looking for people to help out with a range of activities. From woodland walks to after-school sports clubs - there is something for volunteers of all ages and abilities.  The time commitment is up to you and training will be provided.

If you are already quite active or sporty and would like to gain a qualification (sports coaching, trail cycle leader, mountain leader, etc) we can arrange and fund training.   If you have a lapsed qualification and would like refresher training, we can help with that too.
