Our Vision for Financial Education
At Feniton School we believe that in today’s society it is essential that children are educated and prepared for the financial world that we live in. We need to prepare them to be active and responsible financial citizens and have a secure understanding of how managing finances and budgets can impact on their future lives and careers.
This is important to all of our children and families, and we believe that we can provide a strong foundation in financial understanding and a range of opportunities to learn and apply their knowledge and skills to allow them to flourish in the future and live financially secure and successful lives. To achieve this and further our curriculum we are working towards becoming a Centres of Excellence for Financial Education.
In addition to learning how to respect and manage their money, children will become critical consumers. They will consider the risks and emotions associated with money and understand the important role money plays in our ever changing world.
Financial Education Diversity and Inclusion Statement:
Every child has a right to financial education regardless of their background or circumstances. When teaching financial education, ground rules (which adhere to the principles set out in the equality policy) will be established for use within the classroom that all children and staff will follow. The school is aware that financial learning may cover topics which are sensitive, culturally different or that affect the local community. In these lessons, children will be shown how to respond appropriately so that disrespect, taunting and/or bullying of any kind is minimised through knowledge and understanding.
