The rationale for introducing the Investors in Pupils award was taken following an ETI (Education and Training Inspectorate) report in which the school’s pastoral care was evaluated as ‘satisfactory.’ In order to improve on this the school identified the need to increase pupil voice and participation within the school. The five key areas within Investors in Pupils provided a medium for pupil voice and participation to be increased. A form teacher programme was developed which addressed all 14 areas of Investors in Pupils throughout the school year. Accelerated learning mornings were also organised to allow classes time to complete anti-bullying presentations/induction booklets etc. It was the strong focus and commitment to the Investors in Pupils Award and the 5 key areas which resulted in a greater collaboration between pastoral and curricular teams. As a result the ETI report at the end of 2013 highlighted that “the quality of the arrangements for pastoral care is now very good”
