The teaching of business exerts powerful influences on young people as consumers, workers, citizens and ultimately as owners. The development of an understanding of business can equip students to choose how they will contribute
to the world in which they are growing up.
(Nancy Wall, Chief Executive, Economics and Business Education Association)
We believe that Business and Enterprise education is an important addition to our curriculum as it provides our pupils with a growing knowledge and skill base that will in turn develop into the business and economic understanding necessary to live and work in a modern post –industrial society. Within each academic year, teachers plan an opportunity for children to participate in an enterprise themed topic. Links are made across the curriculum and other curriculum subjects are taught with a focus on the theme of a specific project. We continue to work with colleagues from local businesses and further and higher education to ensure that projects are of the highest standard and that children are able to make links between their learning, future education and career paths and the wider world.
