Investors in Pupils Assessment Report

 The Investors in Pupils programme

 

We are aiming to implement Investors in Pupils across our school and to meet the aims of the programme over a period of approximately 2 years; namely:

 

  • To provide a whole school framework for participation
  • To empower pupils through involving them in everyday decision making processes
  • To help create a team ethos and strengthen relationships between pupils and between staff and pupils
  • To help improve the confidence and self-esteem of pupils
  • To help raise pupil achievement and motivation to learn
  • To help raise pupil attendance and improve punctuality
  • To help promote positive behaviour and a greater awareness of social responsibility

     

In achieving the aims of the programme, school life will have a holistic impact on children’s well-being and the progress they make now and in the future.

 

 

Class Induction Booklets

Class Induction Booklets 1
Each class has made a Class Induction booklet to help new children and new staff settle into their new environment.  

Personal Targets

Each class has a personal target display board.  The children come up with a new personal target every term and work towards achieving it and receive a reward when they have done so.

Class Targets

Each class has a Class Target display.  The children in the class come up with a class target based on learning, behaviour or classroom management; the target is also linked to the value that the school is working on at the time.  Class targets are changed every half term and when they are achieved, the group receives a collective reward.

Pupil Voice - Suggestion Box

Lots of pupils have been posting their suggestions in our suggestion box.  Keep your suggestions coming as we do look at every single one of them.  Although lots of the suggestions have been implemented in school, it is not possible to implement all of them, Mrs Jones provides feedback as to why they can't be put into place in assemblies.

Summer Term 2016

 

Year 6 Pupils take over a lesson in FS2 and Year 1

 

 Year 6 children worked in pairs to take over  lessons. Each pupil took on a role of either a teacher or a learning support assistant. They planned and arranged the resources they needed for the lesson. Subjects such as Literacy and Art were taught. It was a successful activity giving year 6 pupils an insight into teaching. The class teachers provided excellent feedback on the lessons and the younger children thoroughly enjoyed the lessons and have been asking if the older children can come and teach them again.

Spring Term 2016

Our School Bursar, Mrs Tootell did an assembly for Key Stage 2 pupils to talk about the school budget and what the money is spent on.  This helped the children learn about the importance of their Eco monitor roles and why we should close outside doors and turn lights off when they are not required.

 

FS2 and Key Stage 1 had lessons in their classes where they found out about the cost of resources that are needed for their learning.

The roles of support staff in school 

 

In April, Mrs Paul did an assembly to the children to talk about her role as Senior Learning Support Assistant in school.  She explained to the children that she is a qualified dancer and she has used this knowledge to choreograph dances for many children for school performances.  Mrs Paul explained that she was a Dental Nurse in a previous job and she has used this knowledge to talk about teeth to groups of children in school.  She also told the children that she has been on many training courses in order to help children in school with their learning.

Negotiating the school's reward system

 

In November, the school council met with Mrs Jones our Principal to discuss and negotiate our reward system.  Each class filled out feedback forms and these were presented to Mrs Jones during the meeting,  The meeting was very successful and the pupils felt that their voices were heard.  As a result of this meeting, Mrs Jones agreed that the children could chose a reward/voucher from lucky dip style bins for achieving their personal targets.  Mrs Makenji and Miss George have set these up and the children are enjoying picking a prize for their efforts.
