Active Schools

My name is Holly Dawson and I am the Active Schools Coordinator for the schools within Northfield ASG. The fundamental aim of Active Schools is to offer all children and young people the opportunities and motivation to adopt active, healthy lifestyles, now and into adulthood. We aim to introduce more physical activity into their daily lives through sports, activities, play and dance.

Active Schools is going online this term, so all clubs and events are now available to book online from today! 🙂 You can also register to be on our mailing list online, a great way to keep up to date with what is happening in our ASG and in the city for school age children. Because of GDPR, we are unable to keep any contact details we currently held prior to summer!

 Here’s the link to sign up to Junior Joggers for P3 – P7’s on Wednesdays from 8am – 8.45am, or Stay and Play on Tuesdays for P2 – P3s, and Football held at Northfield Academy on Thursdays from 3.45pm – 4.35pm for P1 – P3’s (boys and girls sessions), and 4.35pm – 5.30pm for P4 – P7s (boys and girls).

As soon as more clubs and activities become available, they will go up on this link, and posted on the ‘Active Schools Northfield’ Facebook page. We are always looking to add more clubs and activities. If you are interested in volunteering, please get in touch. No prior experience is necessary!

Any questions, please feel free to contact Holly Dawson on

If you have an interest in starting a club or helping at an existing club I would love to hear from you.
Yours sincerely,
Holly Dawson
