What is IIP?

In September 2015 we introduced Investors in Pupils (IIP) at Hilderthorpe School. IIP is an award given to schools that show a commitment to giving the pupils a voice, allowing them to contribute towards the day to day and overall running of school. Empowering pupils to make choices, gain responsibility and enjoy rewards that they have chosen. Investors in Pupils covers five different areas of school life;

  1. Classroom management including Finance
  2. Learning
  3. Behaviour
  4. Attendance
  5. Induction

Since starting IIP, we have seen a positive impact on the pupils. They are playing a huge part in how their school works and now add their thoughts to important decisions.

What do we do at Hilderthorpe for IIP?
