Financial life skills award for Dunkirk.

Dunkirk retains its status as a Centre of Excellence in Financial Education.

Dunkirk as a Centre of Excellence in Financial Education has embraced financial education, embedding it in our curriculum and involving the local community. 

As a Centre of Excellence we have and continue to ensure that financial education integrated into our curriculum so that:

* All our pupils experience lessons and activities in this area 

* There is on-going assessment 

* Pupils build their financial capability as they move up the school.

We already provide opportunities for our children to understand, appreciate and be part of the diverse society in which we live. Helping them to become financially capable is also part of supporting them to meet these challenges and to thrive. We want to start the process which will result in them leaving school with knowledge, skills and confidence to be able to make informed and independent financial decisions. 

The learning journey the children take ensures that learning about money is taught not just as stand-alone lesson within maths sessions, but as an important life lesson throughout school.
