Enterprise At St Andrew’s
Enterprise at St Andrew’s is an integral part of the curriculum. This involves children (and parents) working in different sized groups, as a class, or indeed pupils working independently on a specific enterprise project. This is closely linked in developing a variety of skills particularly in regards to maths and problem solving. Pupils use their initiative and take the lead in many ways, from organising school trips to raising money for their year group. Enterprise education equips students with a set of transferable, practical skills which can be applied to all areas of life, and prepares them for the challenges that lie ahead, as well as addressing Ofsted key issues. These projects also rely heavily on another of St Andrew’s key priorities – pupil voice.
Here are the 13 enterprise skills:
Our Enterprise Projects
