Active School Flag

As part of our continuing commitment to promote activity in our school, Davis College PE Department have begun the process of applying for an Active school Flag

The Active School Flag (ASF) is a Department of Education and Skills initiative which seeks to recognise schools that strive to achieve a physically educated and physically active school community.

The ASF is a national recognition award. Schools that are awarded the ASF are recognised for their efforts in providing a quality PE programme for all students and for promoting physical activity across the whole school community.

The ASF process encourages schools to work collaboratively to plan for and implement improvements across each of the review areas. It empowers schools to forge closer working links with outside agencies that can help to promote physical activity.
