What is the Arts Flag?

The Arts Flag is intended to be a statement of achievement and intent with regard to the prominence and status of the arts in the school. It will be a visible beacon that indicates a commitment to the importance of participation in the arts for the students of the school, both within and outside their classrooms.

The Arts Flag programme aims to:

  • Reward existing excellence in arts activity in schools
  • Promote, foster and develop an appreciation of the place and role of the arts in schools, both within and beyond the curriculum
  • Generate and encourage mutually beneficial working relationships between schools and local artists
  • Help schools engage with arts organizations and venues in their locality
  • Expand and deepen the understanding of what arts activity might represent in schools
  • Enable the Flag to be a motivational emblem that will encourage other schools and communities to participate in the Flag scheme and in the arts in general
