As part of the school’s DLE programme 7S have been taking part in an enterprise scheme in conjunction with ‘Leading Link’ and ‘The Key’. The pupils have been actively planning a micro-business for a number of weeks with an aim that the pupils would develop their enterprise, mathematics, team building and financial skills whilst giving them a taste of what it is like to be an entrepreneur. Each group has been provided with a pot of money to spend on items which they have turned into products to sell on and make a profit. On 17th May they were all invited to attend Sage HQ in Newcastle where they were able to showcase their goods.
Leigh Thompson (Sage Foundation Manager) tweeted us to say “These guys were absolutely brilliant. A credit to the school and the programme. Thx for being part of our #enterprise day.”
The children are also showcasing their products at Morpeth Market on Wednesday 7th June.
