We are very proud at West End to have the Investors in Pupils accreditation, which was re-validated in June 2013. We were delighted with our wonderful Report from the assessor.
Investors in Pupils builds on the principles of Investors in People, at its heart is pupil voice and pupil participation.
Investors in Pupils helps pupils find out about their school, the jobs of everyone in it and that the school has a budget. It supports them in setting targets for the 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.
At West End we agree a class code, mission statement and work on personal targets all year round from Nursery through to Y6. We ensure our classrooms, inside and out, are the best they can be for productive learning by sharing the responsibility of managing its day to day running. Each child has an active role in the class from, Attendance Officials through to ICT Technicians. We regularly take pupil feedback through surveys, discussion, circle times and of course our active Student Council.
This year we have introduced more Pupil Voice initiatives by creating additional teams to lead on important areas of school life. We have Digital Leaders, Mathematics Mentors, Art Councillors, PE and Sports Leaders and Eco Warriors. Each of these groups has representatives from across school playing a leading role in moving this area of school life forward. Pupil participation is one of our top priorities and we pride ourselves on having a fully inclusive child led curriculum that inspires and enthuses our young people.
