School » Investors in Pupils

'Investors' is about children taking control of their learning. They find out about the resources in school, including people who support them, and they develop an awareness of their own role. They work on their behaviour and learning through independent and class targets. There are displays in every classroom and throughout the school to help us to keep focussed.

Aims of Investors in Pupils
To empower pupils through involving them in every day decision making processes.
To help create a team ethos and strengthen relationships between pupils and between staff and pupils.
To help improve the confidence and self esteem of pupils. http://www.investorsinpupils.co.uk

We believe that taking part in the programme helps our children achieve high standards in their education and equips them with important life skills.
 
Learning
With the help of their teachers, the children set new targets for their learning each half term. Their classroom display shows them the progress they are all making and how this contributes to the class reaching its goals.
The five areas of Investors in Pupils

Behaviour
