Programme and school background: The Investors in Pupils programme provides a quality framework within which schools and educational settings develop, embed and enhance pupil voice and participation strategies. It provides opportunities for children and young people to take greater responsibility over their own education and behaviour across five main areas; learning; induction; behaviour; attendance (including punctuality) and school & classroom management. Please visit the programme website for further information at www.investorsinpupils.org.uk.
Roberttown serves a close knit semi-rural village community. Ofsted (2013) described the school as ‘slightly smaller than the average-sized primary school. The proportion of pupils eligible for the pupil premium is well below the national average. The proportions of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds and those who speak English as an additional language are well below national averages. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is below average. The proportion of those supported through school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is well below average’. This remains broadly accurate although class sizes are rising due to the school’s popularity.
Ofsted (2013) judged the school to be outstanding in all areas and many of the inspectors’ findings were immediately evident during this reassessment. The Ofsted judgements are best exemplified through the ‘CARE’ principle that is firmly embedded in the Roberttown approach to pupils’ personal development and wellbeing: ‘Consideration Affection Respect for Everyone & Everything’.
School leaders believe that Investors in Pupils is ‘what we do’ and ‘part of our approach’. Staff are confident that Investors in Pupils principles are firmly embedded in daily school life and are ‘common practice’.
Parents praised the school’s communication systems and the way that children’s achievements are celebrated in school. They feel that their children are listened to, supported and their individual needs are met; ‘I’ve always been welcomed and supported’…. ‘School is a family to the children’.
