Personal Finance Education

In 2013, Lakes Primary School were chosen as one of only 20 schools nationally to represent the North East as a Centre of Excellence in financial education.  We worked in partnership with global information services company, ‘Experian’ and ‘pfeg’ (Personal Finance Education Group, now under the umbrella of ‘Young Enterprise’), to enable the children to gain access to a financial literacy programme giving them life skills, knowledge and confidence to manage finance well into adulthood.
In September 2017(2017-2020), we were successful in achieving the re-accreditation of ‘Centres of Excellence’ in financial education.
