In a recent study by Young Minds, the campaign found that 90% of school leaders in the UK have reported an increase in the number of students experiencing anxiety or stress over the last five years. You only have to attend an international schools conference to see that this is a concern reflected around the globe.
Without effectively addressing the problem, we risk letting students go under the radar, compromising their wellbeing and, ultimately, their success at school.
But how do you find out what these barriers to learning are for every single student?
We like to think that we know our students but children can be very good at hiding behind a mask, while problems often occur outside of the school playground and so are simply out of our control.
The Pupil Attitudes to Self and School Survey (PASS) is designed by an Educational Psychologist to assess students’ mindsets and attitudes to learning, identifying fragile learners and discovering hidden barriers to learning.
The survey is used in schools across the globe and is now accompanied by a range of different interventions that you can then put in place to address any barriers to learning. All the interventions are aligned to the nine attitudinal factors in PASS, including feelings about school and confidence in learning.
The interventions are written by Nicola Lambros, Head Teacher of King's College Panama, based on extensive experience and research and contain practical advice and solutions designed to help you address problems students may be struggling with, ensuring that no child is left behind.
