Pictured here are Beeford CE (VC) Primary School council members with their Investors in Pupils award.
The school has a warm and friendly atmosphere where everyone takes a role in ensuring that it lives up to its motto - all known, all cared for, all contributing.
Over the past 12 months, the school has been working to strengthen these relationships and increase the understanding that children have of how the school works.
The Investors in Pupils programme offers schools a framework for involving pupils in decision making, and developing responsibility and leadership. 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.
The award recognises the achievements of the whole school, classes, groups and individual pupils in five key areas: learning, behaviour, attendance, classroom management and induction.
