We are delighted that our school has been selected to be part of the LifeSavers programme.
LifeSavers supports primary schools in setting up savings clubs, and helping children and their families learn about money. It is a collaborative partnership between the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Just Finance Foundation and education charity Young Enterprise.
LifeSavers is being offered to primary schools across the country, with financial support from Virgin Money and aims to equip children with the knowledge, skills, attitudes and experiences to manage money well, now and in the future. It also explores four core values around money:
As part of LifeSavers, we will be teaching money lessons in the classroom, and we will be holding whole school assemblies looking at the four core values. There may be some homework activities around money that your child will ask you to be involved with!
We will also be launching a schools savings club for pupils, run by pupils and adult volunteers. In addition, we plan to hold some workshops and events later in the year, for families to find out how to help children to learn about money at home, as well as at school.
