Written by schools for schools

The Investors in Pupils programme provides a unique pupil participation framework for all schools and education settings nationally. Initiated by schools the programme began in West Yorkshire before establishing itself nationally with over 500 schools engaging with the programme at some level, and with schools from over 50 Local Authorities having achieved the award to date including Wales and Northern Ireland.

Investors in Pupils is a simple concept that builds on the principles of Investors in People, to empower all pupils, increase motivation and contribute to raising achievement across the Key Stages. The award is non-profit making using any revenue to further support development of the award. 

The programme offers schools a framework for involving pupils in decision making, and developing responsibility and leadership in relation to their learning, behaviour, attendance, classroom management and induction. It is powerful in developing a positive ethos where pupils learn about how the school is run, and, in turn, understand how they themselves can contribute to the running of the school. Pupils commit to common goals and teamwork – together with each other and with staff.

Schools work to continually improve their provision across 14 indicators contained within the evidence and criteria framework.

The Investors in Pupils award lasts for three years from the date of a successful assessment, with many schools continuing to accredit to the award valuing the contribution and focus it brings in developing pupil personal development, behaviour and welfare and school improvement strategies. Ofsted inspection reports continue to acknowledge school achievement and the valuable contribution of Investors in Pupils.
