What is Investors in Pupils? 

The Investors in Pupils programme is an established national quality mark to recognise, develop and extend pupil/student voice and participation strategies in schools and educational settings building young people’s life skills, character and resilience. Supporting personalised learning, the programme fosters healthy relations; pupil to pupil and pupil to adults, leading to greater pupil responsibility over their own learning and behaviour and providing a powerful tool for developing a positive whole-school team ethos.

The five main areas of Investors in Pupils are:

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

The programme is very important for Hilderthorpe children as it helps them to know:

  • How they can contribute towards their own learning by increasing their involvement and working as a team.
  • The roles and responsibilities of everyone in school.
  • The importance of coming to school every day.
  • The cost of our equipment and how we spend our class budgets.
  • Who our Governors are and what they do.
  • What each member of staff does and how adults in school as well as the children are on a journey of life-long learning.
  • How to look after new children and staff in school.
  • The benefits of making good choices.
  • That they are an important part of their class and school.
