2023 PASS Survey October 9-13

Our school is taking part in the 2023 Pupil Attitudes to Self and School (PASS) survey. Developed by a team of educational psychologists from multiple universities, PASS provides teachers with highly reliable and valid information about how they feel about themselves as a learner and how they feel about school. Available in twenty languages, PASS allows schools to detect possible barriers to student learning, including issues around confidence, resilience, motivation, and concentration. The PASS survey will allow our school to proactively address non-academic barriers to learning, which can compromise the well-being and academic success of our students. During the coming year, PASS will be administered in the Fall and Spring. Please be assured that student confidentiality will be strictly protected.
