PASS' test; Digging into the Hearts of our students

In order to have a 360-degree assessment of our students, we have a test called PASS (Pupils Attitude to Self and School). PASS is a short self-evaluation survey that is used to gain insight into attitudes that could be hindering achievement including issues around confidence, resilience, motivation, concentration, disaffection and alienation. With PASS results we are able to identify fragile learners who are not achieving their potential due to attitudinal barriers. PASS reports will normally be shared with parents. In Springforte-Lead College, we want each child to feel that every lesson has been personalized and designed specifically to meet their needs.
