Investors in Pupils
We are working towards Investors in Pupils.
What is Investors in Pupils?
Investors in Pupils is all about the children taking control of their own learning. They learn about the cost of resources in school and where the money comes from to buy them. Children develop an understanding of the staff in school and the role that they play. Much of the award is based around their behaviour and learning through individual and class targets. Each classroom has an Investors in Pupils display to help keep the children focused.
At the beginning of each new academic year, children discuss and decide upon their own class charter. They make a decision on what they want their classroom to be like and link these to the five key themes of Investors in Pupils – Attendance, Learning, Classroom Management, Behaviour and Induction. They use these decisions to create a class promise. Class promises are signed by all pupils and displayed.
Induction Books/PowerPoint Presentation
Each class has either made a power point or an induction book to support new children or staff to understand what happens in their classroom. The children decide upon the important information to include and they all contribute.
At the beginning of each half term, classes decide upon a target and a reward. Each class then works hard and supports each other to achieve the whole class target and earn their reward. Having a whole class target encourages team work, enthusiasm and responsibility.
Children also have an individual target which is regularly referred to and displayed, with a reward given once achieved. These are half termly but may be achieved early and a new target set.
Children understand the importance of good attendance and how it affects their learning. In school we have classopoly, where classes are rewarded weekly for good attendance. A termly award is also given to 100% attenders.
All classrooms have the school rules displayed so that they can be followed and adhered to. Children make reference to behaviour within their class promise. Trackit lights is used to track individual -pupil’s behaviour and rewards positive behaviours.
