Investors in Pupils

logobankendDear families

Today we have had an assessment in school to see if we can be accredited with the Investors in Pupils Award.  If we are successful  we will be the first school in Barnsley to achieve this very special award.  I wanted to share with you that we will find out the news in 10 days’ time and let you know, but more importantly I wanted to share with you how very amazing your children are and give you the headline statements that will form part of our report.


  • The school is clear and consistent in how we improve areas
  • Governors are well informed
  • Children have an equal partnership with adults
  • There is a ‘no fear of failure’ culture
  • Pupil Voice is strong
  • The School Council is strong and efficient
  • Children love coming to school
  • Children are proud of their school
  • Children use and understand all their targets for learning
  • Children love the curriculum
  • Children know how to review their own learning
  • Children relate the skills they learn with how it will help them in the future
  • Children understand sanctions and help each other to behave well
  • Children have a good understanding of the budget and how it is used in school


As you can imagine we are very, very proud that the assessor saw our school so strongly.  I am sure you will join me in thanking the staff for their hard work and support us in continuing to provide quality to your very special children.
