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.
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. LifeSavers classroom resources fit well within the PSHE, Maths and Citizenship curriculum. The materials develop alongside the children as they progress through the school.
