ACTIVE SCHOOL FLAG 2022-2023
The process incentivises schools to engage in a process of self-reflection, action planning and collaboration at whole school level.
Sitting in front of every teacher, every day, are children and young people that DO NOT meet the recommended daily physical activity level target of 60 minutes.
ASF is an ambitious whole school process. In order to succeed, and to ensure that the benefits of ASF reach into every classroom, it is important that management and staff commit to supporting, promoting and actively engaging with the process.
ASF encourages schools to strengthen their PE programmes and to promote physical literacy.
A broad and balanced PE programme is essential, at all class levels, to ensure that students have the opportunity to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes that they require to live physically active lives.

Active School Flag Programme
The Active School Flag Programme is a modern, fun and engaging programme with research (by D.C.U.) showing long term benefits for the whole school community including:
- More physically active school community (including teachers).
- improved concentration and focus for students in class.
- improved school atmosphere & pupil-teacher relationships.
- improved attendance and behaviour in school.
All primary schools, using the School Self-Evaluation (SSE) process, are required to review one area of Wellbeing by 2023.
The Active School Flag Programme is a Whole of School initiative which embeds 'being physically active' into the ethos of the school. It aligns with both 'The Wellbeing Framework' and the 'School Self-Evaluation' (SSE) process and can be used to help schools fulfil their commitments in this regard.
Currently there are 630 schools nationally with Active School Flag status, with 21 of these in Co. Wexford.
Applications for interested primary schools will open on Friday, 1st October at www.activeschoolflag.ie.
