Our Financial Education Vision Statement

We are delighted to announce that Beecroft Academy is working towards becoming a Centre of Excellence for financial education. We are working in partnership with the charity pfeg (the Personal Finance Education Group), part of the Young Enterprise Group, to achieve this accolade.

We believe that all children should have a sound understanding of money and finance in order to prepare themselves for the future. We therefore intend to provide our students with a financial education curriculum to improve children’s confidence and competence when working with and managing money.

Financial education for our pupils will mean that in addition to learning how to manage their money, they will also learn how to become critical consumers. They will consider the risks and emotions associated with money and understand the important role that money plays in our lives.
