At St Botolph’s Primary School we recognise the importance of Enterprise education. We aim to create an enterprising ethos throughout the school where Enterprise is embedded in the whole school curriculum.
Through enterprise education we aim to:
  • Develop the core skills of communication, Numeracy, Literacy, problem-solving, using ICT and working with others.
  • Develop enterprising attitudes and skills through learning and teaching.
  • Develop a knowledge and understanding of the world of work.
  • Enhance personal and social development.
  • Form links with the wider community.
  • Foster and develop skills in citizenship.

This week children from Year 5 have been selling tasty treats to raise money for homeless charities. This was an event that they decided that they would like to run and organise themselves. They had a lot of customers, drawn in by the delicious snacks available. The children took over £30 on the day and we are very proud of their efforts!
