Active School Flag is a Department of Education and Skills initiative supported by Healthy Ireland.

The Active School Flag (ASF) is awarded to schools that strive to achieve a physically educated and physically active school community. The process aims to get more schools, more active, more often.

Schools wishing to achieve the ASF begin the process by self-evaluating their current provision across 3 areas - Physical Education, Physical Activity and Partnerships. Schools must also organise an Active School Week programme and commit to having it as part of their annual school calendar. Schools that can say ‘yes’ to all of the ASF success criteria will be awarded with the active flag. The flag remains valid for a period of 3 years after which time schools will be invited to re-apply.

Dublin City Sport & Wellbeing Partnership (DCSWP) support primary schools in Dublin City to attain the ASF through the following methods:

  • Providing advice to teachers to increase physical activity provided in schools
  • Linking schools with local clubs
  • Linking schools to our co-funded Officers i.e. Soccer, Rugby, Boxing, Cricket, Rowing
  • Linking schools with local sport facility providers
