Milking Bank Primary School

To go further than I thought; to run faster than I hoped; to reach higher than I dreamed.


Milking Bank are proud to be participating in our second year of JASS. This year we are going bigger and better!

With the support of Mr Smith and Mrs Crisp, year 5 pupils will be working towards their silver accreditation and year 4 pupils will be working towards their bronze award. We look forward to updating you on our progress!


The Junior Award Scheme for Schools (JASS) is an accredited award scheme for young people. By providing a structured programme, JASS aims to support young people through the transition from primary school to lower secondary school and beyond. JASS has been designed to be flexible and adaptable to the interests and abilities of individuals to ensure it is achievable by all participants, whilst matching the goals of their Schools Curriculum. 

Why use JASS

JASS is fully aligned with current educational thinking and in particular with the Curriculum for Excellence and the Outdoor Learning Strategy. Because of this, JASS can be a strong partner in describing and evidencing the new breadth of learning, and in providing new levels of challenge to sit alongside the core curriculum. JASS aims to build on the Curriculum for Excellence’s main capacities:

  • Successful Learners

  • Confident Individuals

  • Effective Contributors

  • Responsible Citizens

Although JASS was developed in-line with the Curriculum for Excellence, there is no doubt that these core capabilities also fit with a variety of curriculum outcomes worldwide.

How JASS works

JASS is structured into four sections, designed to stretch different aspects of developing confident individuals.

  • Adventure: outdoor activity and learning, including team work and problem solving

  • Get Active, Stay Active: taking part in sport and physical activity

  • My Interests: developing an interest or learning a new skill

  • Me and My World: contributing to the local community

Each of these sections can be constructed to meet the needs of the individuals or to tie in with local interests or projects.
