At Bacon Garth we are working towards a prestigious quality award called Investors in Pupils.
Investors in Pupils (IIP) helps pupils find out about their school, the school budget and the jobs of everyone in it. The award aims to support children in setting targets for their class and for themselves whilst recognising the importance of the roles and responsibilities of everyone involved in their education, and how they as pupils, can make a difference.
IIP is a whole-school approach to enable effective pupil participation and pupil voice across the school organisation and community and focuses on five main areas:
learning, induction, behaviour, attendance and classroom management.
Here are just a few examples of some of the things we have already introduced as part of IIP:
Young First Aiders
Investors in Pupils Committee
Governors linked to each class
Celebrations of individual and class successes
