Active Flag

We already have an Active School flag and we are working on renewing it this year- 2021.

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

To achieve the Active School Flag we started by self-evaluating our current provision across PE, Physical Activity and Partnerships. We then planned and implemented improvements that continue to have a real and tangible impact on our school community.

We already have a very strong history of physical activity and team sports. We continue to introduce a variety of activities to the children in our school.

As part of the Active School programme, we organise an Active Schools Week in June. This is a whole school initiative, with exciting activities and lots of fun and games to look forward to. One of the aims of Active Schools Week is to show that not only is physical activity good for you but it can also be lots of fun and a great way to spend time with friends.

We regularly showcase some of our activities on our Twitter page- @CoolcappaNS
