Investors In Pupils

Investors In Pupils is a whole-school approach to enable effective pupil participation and pupil voice across the school organisation and community.  The award is focussed in five main areas:

  • Learning
  • Induction
  • Behaviour
  • Attendance (including punctuality)
  • School and classroom management

We believe that taking part in the programme will help the children achieve high standards in their education and will equip them with important life skills.

The five areas of Investors in Pupils

Learning

Each classroom's display has individual targets set by the children themselves.  The display shows the progress they are all making and how this contributes to the class reaching its goals.

Induction

Each class has an induction booklet which is for new members to the class and visitors alike.  This contains information about life in the classroom and the school in general.  We hope this makes new people feel very welcome to the class and to the school as a whole.

Behaviour

The children learn to take responsibility for their behaviour in their lessons and around school.  The classes agree on Class charters at the beginning of each year. They also set class behaviour targets using WOWW (Working On What Works) charts and negotiate the rewards they will receive on achieving these.

Attendance

The children understand the importance of good attendance and how it affects their learning.  The children receive bronze, silver and gold attendance certificates.  Attendance is very good at Roos Primary School.

School and classroom management

The children think about what needs to be done to ensure that the classroom life runs smoothly.  They decide on classroom job titles and job descriptions and apply to take on these roles.

Below is a list of some of some of the things that will be happening during the course of the term.

  • The school council will be running a Fairtrade stall during Fairtrade Fortnight.
  • Fairtrade 'Take a break' Café will be held at the school the morning will be led and planned by the school council.
  • The school council will organise an adult and children's Easter raffle.
  • The children will embrace walk to school Fridays.
