Active School Flag

The Active School Flag is a Department of Education and Skills initiative which recognises schools that strive to achieve of physically educated and physically active school communitty, by awarding them with the Active School Flag (ASF).


Active School Flag

The programme encourages all schools to evaluate their current provision of P.E. and extracurricular sports activities for the children and increases parents' awareness of facilities, teams and clubs in our area. This is a non-competitive initiative highlighting the importance of physical activity and sport in schools and communtities in which the children are based.

Kildalkey N.S. began the process in 2017 by self-evaluating our current provision across 3 areas: Physical Education, Physical Activity and Partnerships. It is a great opportunity to recognise all the strengths the school has in terms of physical activity. It is also an opportunity to highlight the areas that need to be improved.

The Active School Flag will be awarded to schools that:

  • Adhere to DES guidelines regarding PE timetable provision for all students.
  • Teach a broad and balanced PE curriculum.
  • Inform and invite the whole school community to particpate in the ASF process.
  • Self-evaluate current provision in terms of PE, Physical Activity and Partnerships.
  • Plan, implement and monitor improvements for each of the aforementioned areas.
  • Organise an 'Active School Week' as part of the annual school calendar
  • See for more information regarding the Active School Flag process.
