‘Investors in Pupils’ is a national quality charter mark award scheme.

It recognises the achievements of whole schools, requiring pupils to set themselves and their class, meaningful targets which are not only related to learning but could also impact on behaviour, attendance, classroom management and induction.

Further emphasis is placed on the development of pupils responsibilities, finance and enterprise, enhanced communication with parents and governors, and knowledge of budget and staff roles in the running of their school. 

It develops the process of pupil participation and pupil voice and empowers the young people to help change and improve their school, impacting greatly on the improvement of health and well-being and education outcomes.
