Financial Education

Vision for Financial Education

At Rossett Acre, our children experience a creative and exciting curriculum which prepares them for life beyond the classroom. Financial education plays a crucial role in our children becoming financially capable members of society and achieving excellence and happiness in the wider world. Whilst money does not always make you happy, being able to manage money responsibly and understand the impact finance can have is an invaluable life skill for our children.

At Rossett Acre we have designed a bespoke, exciting Financial Education Curriculum for all!

National Conference

Some of our teachers attend the National Financial Education conference in London.

We host a national conference every year, which is free to attend, and forms an integral part of the Centres of Excellence programme. This provides the perfect opportunity for teachers and practitioners to showcase their work, share ideas, attend workshops and access a large range of financial education related resources and tools.

We are a Centre of Excellence for Financial Education!
