At Passmores we are passionate about learning and teaching. The school gives the highest priority to quality teaching that excites, motivates and challenges all young people. Our mission is to develop highly educated, well rounded students who can make their way in the world as successful citizens.
This website aims to inform you about the curriculum, facilities and organisation of our school, and to give you an indication of the philosophy of education which underpins all that we do.
Passmores School is proud to be the recipient of the National Healthy Schools Status. This is a nationally recognised award which acknowledges the hard work and commitment the school does with regards to the care and guidance of all its community.
The award assesses the school for forty-one standards in four key areas: Personal, Social and Health Education; Emotional Health and Well Being; Physical Activity and Healthy Eating. Throughout the course of the last school year Passmores has introduced a number of new initiatives to support these areas.
In June 2007 we organised our first Healthy Schools Week. The students followed a different timetable for the week to allow them to undertake a specialised programme focusing upon the key areas. Such events included a visit from the Army, drugs and smoking workshops, specialised lessons with a focus on healthy lifestyles in all subjects, a Farmhouse Breakfast and increased physical activity. The week was a great success and contributed to our successful application for NHSS.
Having now received the award we need to ensure that the hard work continues to ensure that we maintain our commitment and we look forward to another successful Healthy Schools Week next year.
