AST is “Another Tool in a School’s Armoury.”


According to the TES, General Secrtary of the ATL “supports the idea of tracking pupil’s mental health in a more systematic way” and says AST is ” another tool in a school’s armoury.” Ms Bousted suggested AST “wouldn’t catch a pupil who really wanted to hide their issues”. In reply, to be precise, AST will detect 82 out of every 100 children at risk, including those trying to hide their issues.
