Active Schools 2018-19

Clermiston Primary are really proud of our link with Mattie and Active Schools. There are LOADS of opportunities for your child to find a sport that they love, and improve their fitness levels at the same time. It is really easy to sign up and Mattie is always available to answer any of your questions so nothing will stand in your way!

Active Schools aims to provide more and higher quality opportunities for children to participate in sport before and after school and at lunch times.

A range of volunteers, including teachers, parents, coaches and young leaders, deliver the activities. 

Active Schools works with organisations and individuals, including PE staff, sports development officers and local clubs, to provide a wide range of opportunities connected to physical education, school sport and club sport.

In 2019, Clermiston will apply for the Gold School Sport Award through Sportscotland. This is an award which is given to schools who place PE, extra-curricular sport and physical activity as a priority. The school needs to meet specific criteria to qualify for the award, including having over 40% of the school roll participating in extra-curricular activity. Last year, Clermiston had 31.4% of the school roll attending, as a school, we need to get more pupils involved in different sports to achieve this award!

We are also looking for more parents and teachers to get involved in helping deliver or assist Active Schools sessions. If you are interested in getting involved, get in touch with Active Schools via the details below.

If you have any questions or suggestions for Active Schools, feel free to get in touch!
