Welcome to JASS

Junior Award Scheme for Schools (JASS) is a progressive learning programme for 10 - 13 year olds which has been designed to recognise wider achievement.  A key aim has been to meet the challenges of the transition from primary to secondary but in practice it can be used at either level and is also used with wider age groups in special education settings.

In recent evaluation all teachers who responded reported that their pupils were more confident as a result of doing their JASS programme.   84% of primary school pupils felt better equipped to face future challenges.  Please click here to see the full report.

JASS develops the whole individual by offering recognition in four key areas – regular physical activity (Get Active Stay Active), exploring a personal interest (My Interests), working for the good of the community or the environment (Me and My World) and completing an outdoor activity or challenge (Adventure) and is designed so that participants move from Bronze, to Silver and then to Gold with increasing levels of learning and challenge.

The objectives of the JASS programme are aligned with the wider learning objectives of the Curriculum for Excellence. The Outdoor Challenge and Key Stages 2 and 3 of the National Curriculum programme, making it easy to run alongside and incorporate existing curricular activities.
