All children at Carpenters are taught the skills to be financially literate. Children are taught financial education, during Work week and throughout our school Math days. During these lessons, children acquire life skills that teach them how to manage money. By teaching the children about money, we seek to help them discover the relationships between earning, spending and saving.
At Carpenters, financial literacy begins in EYFS and starts with money concepts such as counting coins and receiving change for purchases. As the children progress through to Key Stages One and Two the children learn about savings, accounts, banks, keeping money safe and creating personal budgets, including calculating simple interest.
