We are currently working towards a prestigious quality award called Investors in Pupils.
Investors in Pupils (IIP) helps pupils find out about their school, the school budget and the jobs people do to ensure our school is the best place it can be. The award aims to support children in setting targets for their class and for themselves whilst recognising the importance of the roles and responsibilities of everyone involved in their education, and how they as pupils, can make a difference.
IIP is a whole-school approach to enable effective pupil participation and pupil voice across the school organisation and community and focuses on five main areas:
learning, induction, behaviour, attendance and classroom management.
Here are just a few examples of some of the things we have already introduced as part of IIP:
Junior Road Safety Team
School monitors including litter, office and IT jobs
Governors linked to each class
Celebrations of individual and class successes
Class Induction Books
Class and personal targets focused on regularly
Pupil and adult led assemblies promoting pupil understanding and participation in our community
Community Projects and Activities
Increased Extra-curricular provision
Introduced ‘Stay and…’ sessions across the school alongside regular class assemblies and themed days
