We are continuing our work to achieve the Investors in Pupils Award this year. Investors in Pupils aims to give children a better understanding of how our school works. It gives children a voice in the way the school is run and how it can improve, whilst also helping them to learn about the roles and responsibilities of the whole school community. We believe that this produces a sense of pride and personal responsibility into each child's learning.
Investors in Pupils focuses on 5 areas:
· Attendance and Punctuality
· Induction (How we help visitors, new pupils and adults to settle in)
· Classroom Management (Keeping things tidy, knowing their cost and value, looking after them)
Each class has a Mission Statement, which was agreed at the start of the year that sets out how they want their class to be. Every class also has a class target and each child has a personal target, which they aim to achieve over the term. This personal target has been chosen by your child and is displayed on their locker. They are responsible for monitoring their progress towards this target. These targets will be personally reviewed at the end of the term along with a conversation with an adult in their class and then new targets set. Your child has a copy of their target to bring home so please chat to them about their target and their progress towards achieving it.
The children are also putting together a Welcome and Induction book to help anyone who is new to their class to settle in. These will be completed by the end of this term. Next time you are in your child's classroom, why not ask to have a look?
More news of our work towards Investors in Pupils will be updated soon.
