LifeSavers Financial Education from the Just Finance Foundation
The LifeSavers programme is a free financial education initiative available for state-funded primary schools. Delivered by the Just Finance Foundation, LifeSavers has been created to help children manage money wisely now and in the future.
We’re providing free training and resources that equip teachers to deliver money lessons, and keep children engaged in healthy money habits. JFF is fortunate to partner with generous funders who contribute funds, resources and expertise that helps us continue to provide high quality financial education at no cost to schools.
- 5 Big Questions about money – whole school resources, lesson activities and assembly plans to promote meaningful conversations about money.
- Milo’s money – a beautifully illustrated storybook complete with Milo the Dino soft toy. Supplementary resources available for EYFS and KS1.
- Moneybox productions – interactive classroom resources that fit within drama and English as well as PSHE, citizenship and maths. Designed for pupils in KS2.
In March 2022 Wiltshire schools attended a Money Maths and Dinosaurs! webinar to hear more the Lifesavers resources.
The LifeSavers programme helps to reinforce positive attitudes and behaviours in relation to money from a young age. Research shows that habits and attitudes around money are being formed before the age of 7. That’s why LifeSavers encourages children to develop a wise, generous, just, and thankful attitude to money, contributing towards their character development and future life chances.
Developed in consultation with education experts, the LifeSavers resources align with the national curriculum and focus on improving numeracy and critical thinking, as well as key money concepts. Created by teachers for teachers, we keep expanding our resources to support schools and reach more children of all backgrounds and abilities. These resources include cross-curricular activities for Maths, PHSE, English and Drama, and innovative research projects dedicated to making financial education accessible to more children.
