Investors in Pupils builds on the principles of Investors in people, at its heart are pupil voice and pupil participation.
Investors in Pupils helps children find out about their school, the jobs of the staff in it and that the school has a budget. It supports them in setting targets for the 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.
We began our work on Investors in Pupils by each class creating a class handbook. This was to help new children coming into our school become familiar with the staff and the routines of the classroom. Each year group discussed our class hand books in a whole school assembly.
