Active School

The Active School Flag (ASF) is awarded by the Department of Education and Skills (DES) to schools that strive to achieve a physical educated and physically active school community.
 

The Active School Flag is awarded to schools that:

  • Adhere to DES guidelines regarding physical education (PE) timetable provision for all students
     

  • Teach a broad and balanced PE curriculum
     

  • Inform and invite the whole school community to participate in the ASF process
     

  • Self-evaluate current provision in terms of PE, physical activity and community links
     

  • Plan and implement improvements for each of the above areas
     

  • Organise an Active School Week as part of the annual school calendar
     

The ASF is a whole-school process. It also helps us to forge closer working links with parents, the local community and outside agencies to help promote physical activity and sport.

Timoleague NS achieved Active Schools status in 2014. This has to be renewed every 3 years.
