Money Matters - Young Money
We are very excited to be working with Young Money and HSBC towards gaining the Centre of Excellence for Financial Literacy Award.
We feel it is really important for our children to be able to manage their money well throughout their lives. These skills don’t come automatically – they need to be taught, and as it is part of our responsibility to prepare them for adult life. We believe embedding financial education into our school curriculum is a necessity.
After our launch assembly in March each class has 'met' their family and found out a bit more about their situation and how much money they have to 'live on' each month. Over the coming months the children will have different scenarios to investigate for their family which may have implications for their monthly budgets.
We will keep you updated as we progress further into the project.
