Dear Mums, Dads and Carers

At Someries we welcome you, as part of the school community, to support your child in this fantastic opportunity to achieve a high standard in actively working towards the Investors In Pupils award as part of a whole school framework for pupil participation and giving our children a voice. There will be many new and exciting opportunities for pupils to be involved in everyday decision making processes. If you have any questions please feel free to contact the school office and ask for Miss Perini or Mrs Whiting.

 

Why invest in pupils?

The award recognises the achievements of the whole school, classes, groups and individual pupils in five key areas:

  • learning
  • behaviour
  • attendance
  • classroom management
  • induction

 

Some of the benefits

  • Pupils begin to have a real understanding and an awareness of how their school works.
  • Becoming actively involved in their education and taking more responsibility for their school life.
  • Working together and feeling part of a team.

 

What does it mean?

Investors In Pupils teaches and supports children to take control of their learning. The scheme builds on best practice which already exists in our school. Throughout this process our whole school community needs to work together to achieve our aims. We believe that taking part in this programme will have a positive impact on our children to aid them in achieving high standards in all curriculum areas and to take pride in our school.
