Active School Programme

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

Active School Committee
Our Active School Committee, consisting of 14 pupils from 1st class upwards, meets and discusses our progress, makes future plans, conducts spot checks, etc. They update the active school board and check the suggestion box. You will recognise our committee as they wear an active school badge.

Active School Week
Our school organises an Active School Week as part of our annual school calendar. This is one of our favourite weeks of the school year. We wear our tracksuit bottoms for the whole week. Active homework is the only homework we receive. During Active School week we travel to school as actively as possible. For some this means walking the whole way to school and for others this means walking from the graveyard or the church car park. During this week our school tour and the Sports Day take place.

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.
