Since June of last year we have been working hard to enrich our mathematical curriculum at Sherbourne Fields School by becoming a ‘Centre of Excellence’ for delivering Financial Education to all of our students.

In order to achieve this, since September all students across the school now take part in weekly Financial Education lessons as part of their 20/20 sessions.  Students have been working hard on a range of concepts including coin recognition, how to keep our money safe, the value of money, budgeting, saving versus spending and debt and all have had opportunities to spend their money in real life situations.

At school we endeavour to provide each student with as many of these opportunities as possible within school time. One way we feel we are able to move this forward and provide more experiences for our students is by opening our own shop. We are currently in the process of erecting the shop at the front of the school which we are hoping to open after Easter. The shop will be open to all staff, students, parent/carer(s) and friends of Sherbourne.  Customers   will be able to buy various products and resources made by the students at the school, during Enterprise, horticulture, meal preparation and the Wedge Workshop.  Refreshments, stationary and many other items will also be for sale.  Students from across the school will also have the opportunity to gain real life work experience by applying to work in the shop where they will be dealing with and handling money.
