What is Investors in Pupils? 
Investors in Pupils aims to give children a better understanding of how school works. It supports giving children a voice in school whilst

also helping them to learn about the roles and responsibilities of the whole school community.
The Investors in Pupils award is based on five key areas:
  • Behaviour
  • Attendance and Punctuality
  • Classroom Management
  • Induction
  • Learning
What will you see in each classroom?
  • Class Vision
  • Class Promise
  • Teachers Promise
  • A class target
  • Individual pupil targets
  • An induction class book
  • Classroom jobs and responsibilities
  • Class budget display. Each class is given £50 at the beginning of the year. Children will lose money from the budget if equipment is broken. At the end of the year, each class will choose a reward using the money they have left.
  • Pupils should know about the different roles of staff members.
