About Active Schools
The fundamental aim of the Active Schools Network is to offer all children and young people the opportunities and motivation to adopt active, healthy lifestyles, now and into adulthood.Active Schools Managers and Coordinators are responsible for developing and supporting an infrastructure for Active Schools within the school and wider community. They do this by recruiting, supporting and sustaining a network of volunteers, coaches, leaders and teachers who in turn deliver physical activity and sport before, during and after school and in the wider community.The Active Schools Network is working towards two key aims: • To continue to increase opportunities for all children and young people to be engaged in physical activity and sport. • To strengthen pathways to participation and performance through sustainable school to community links.
