This example shows how enterprise education, including the development of pupils’ financial capability and their economic and business understanding only prepares students for their future life as consumers, producers and citizens, and contributes to outstanding achievement throughout the school. Children are introduced to economic ideas in the Early Years Foundation Stage and there is progression through to Year 6.
