A trip to KidZania!

This term in Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education, year 7 pupils have been developing the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. They have been focusing on further education and possible career choices.

To build on this learning, the pupils went to KidZania Westfield; a place where they were able to get a fun and realistic insight into the adult world by taking part in a choice of ‘jobs’ which earned them kidZos (KidZania currency) and then leisure activities such as Climbing Building, where they could spend their kidZos. They also had the option to open a their own personal savings account where they could receive their own bank card! As part of the realism, pupils reap the benefits of the working world by gaining financial awareness through learning how to budget, spend and save their money. 

Our teacher, Miss Prince, said “The pupils really enjoyed the day! It was brilliant and helped to enable the children’s independence!”

YPA has a good understanding and built a rapport with my son. He has been happy and well cared for to the point where he has met his full potential and thrived. The right balance and structure has provided for my son’s complex needs. Thank you for your continuous support.  Parent
