Enterprise is based on a mixed set of life and business skills which help to enrich our curriculum. These skills are explicit and are used and displayed throughout school all year round. Each term classes have an enterprise event in which they aim to use most of these skills.
Enterprise in Early Years is based on 6 Enterprise Characters:
Tim and Tom Team Work Twins show the children how to work together as part of a team.
Chloe Creativity helps the children to be creative especially in Art, DT, Music, Performing and Writing.
Izzy Initiative develops independence and confidence to try new things.
Charlie Communicate encourages good communication skills.
Freddie Finance develops number skills as well as developing the concept of money and what it is used for.
Pippa Positive encourages a positive 'have a go' mindset.
