Charlton Park Academy is delighted to announce that we are aiming to become a Centre of Excellence for Financial Education. We are working with the charity Young Money to achieve this award over the next academic year.
We believe that financial capability is an important life skill, therefore it is crucial that our young people are equipped with the knowledge, ability, and confidence to manage their money. The long-term goal is to provide our students with a clear understanding of the importance of financial planning and the role of money in their daily life.
This links in with the philosophy of developing our student’s independence and being lifelong learners. We believe that all young people and including those with a power of attorney, should be given the best chance to understand and assess the risks and emotions associated with their finances and the impact their decisions will have on their lives.
