Active School Programme

For a number of years we have been introducing different activities that help us implement the Active School Flag Programme. The Active School Flag is awarded to schools who strive to achieve a physically educated and physically active school community. One of its aims is to raise awareness, in the whole school community, of the need for physical activity in a healthy lifestyle.

We are very proud of this achievement. We hope to be just as proud this year as we are working towards getting our second Active School flag. You can read all about our progress below.

How to achieve an Active School status
To achieve Active School status, the school must engage in self-evaluation in the areas of planning and professional development, physical activity throughout the school day and extra-curricular activities and develop partnerships with outside agencies. They must also organise an Active school Week. The school must then draw up an improvement plan which is clearly linked to the self-evaluation process findings. Targets are set and various programmes introduced. When the school feels it has met its targets, it must submit evidence of the work completed and request an accreditation visit.
