Financial Education

At Amble First School, we recognise the importance of teaching children about the value of money from an early age. We use the Lifesavers programme to teach our children the knowledge, skills and attitudes to manage their money wisely.
Each half term we have a 'Money Day' where the children focus on one of the Lifesavers big questions. These are:

1: Where does our money come from?

2: How does money make us feel?

3: What can we use our money for?

4: How does our money help other people?

5: How can we look after our money?

Through these, the children take part in discussions and activities to develop their confidence and ability to understand and handle money responsibly.
