This year, our Arundale Enterprise Committee Team have been working super hard to think of and share ideas, communicate and team build. We have regular meetings to chat and think about their future and the skills they have to develop on to build a career. We encourage our Year 6 pupils to take part in building our school ethos.
We see enterprise as a way to foster and develop core skills in real situations; to promote education for citizenship; to enhance pupil’s personal and social development; to provide opportunities for pupils to make informed choices and decisions.
We define enterprise capability as innovation, creativity, risk-management and risk-taking, and a can-do attitude and the drive to make ideas happen.
Each week, as an Enterprise Committee, we discuss and decide upon different enterprise ideas to use in our business selling snacks during break times. This is to gather funds for our school development and we collect the money together so that we can use it to improve our school in some way. Our Profit stands at £555.09. We used this money to buy playground furniture and equipment.
We are encouraging the rest of school to eat healthily and have chosen healthy options to sell at our tuck shop. Also we help the children who have not had breakfast in the mornings before they come to school by giving them a quick healthy snack e.g. a cereal bar.
