Active Schools

There are no set prices for Active Schools activities, as the majority of the programme is funded through sportscotland. Officers will set Active Schools prices for each programme after an assessment of costs involved and the degree of external funding available with a view to recovering all reasonable costs whilst ensuring pricing is in line with our agreement with sportscotland.
