BUSINESS & COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIPS
Weatherfield Academy has been working very closely with Pfeg (Personal Finance Education Group) in connection with the Mathematics Curriculum. In Mathematics we are now offering our pupils a Financial lesson once a week following the planning developed by Pfeg. Pfeg are the UK's leading financial education charity that provide resources, lesson plans, help and advice to anyone teaching children and young people about money. Weatherfield Academy is happy to announce that Pfeg have helped us to deliver 'My Money Week,' delivered an Inset Training event for all staff and will be continuing to support us in the financial education of our pupils. Pfeg work in connection with Barclays Bank and more recently with Natwest and their resource 'Mathematics Guidance and resources, November 2013.' By working with Pfeg Weatherfield Academy can ensure that our pupils will be getting the most up to date, relevant financial information to help and assist them in their personal finances now and in the future.
Weatherfield Academy and Commonfield Services, which manufactures fitted wardrobes and bedrooms for both the building trade and public, located in Lawrence Way Industrial Estate, Dunstable are pleased to be working together in partnership. Mr Philip Meredith, Managing Director of Commonfield, has said the relationship between our Academy and Commonfield is for “the long term”. He said: “I would like to get other businesses here and get them involved. The atmosphere is
unbelieveable. It’s not about what you can get out of it. It is a tremendous cause.”
