LifeSavers offers

  • a free and comprehensive set of classroom and collective worship resources,
  • CPD training in how to develop a whole school approach to financial education
  • advice on setting up a school savings club
  • ideas for engaging parents designed to give children a practical experience of handling money and ensure that positive messages about money are reinforced at home.

Our values-based approach to financial education seeks to cultivate a wise, thankful, generous, and just attitude to money, as well as knowledge and skills in managing personal finances.

We hope that LifeSavers will help your school to deliver a coherent, tailored programme of financial education, using all of the opportunities the curriculum provides for developing children's financial capability.
