Active Schools Report: 2017-2018

Across each academic year, the Active Schools Network of managers and coordinators gather information on the activities which they have supported in schools. This data is used to support the planning and delivery of the Active Schools programme.

At the end of each academic year, this information is collated into a report, which summarises the activity across Scotland.

In the 2017/18 academic year 309,000 distinct participants made over 7.3 million visits (participant sessions*) to Active Schools activities.

Over 22,500 deliverers (88% of whom are voluntary/over 20,000 Volunteers), provided 389,000 Activity Sessions in range of over 100 different sports/activities. There were 2,700 links between schools and sports clubs, helping pupils to participate in sport outwith their school. See full report below for further details.
