Financial Education Planning Frameworks

We have developed two frameworks which support the planning, teaching, and progression of financial education. They are designed to help you deliver financial education flexibly across your curriculum in citizenship, PSHE education, maths and beyond.

The frameworks have been designed to help you deliver financial education flexibly across the range of subjects and learning opportunities available within your school’s curriculum.

They support the planning, teaching and progression of financial education by setting out the key areas of financial knowledge, skills and attitudes relevant to children and young people across four core themes:

  • How to manage money
  • Becoming a critical consumer
  • Managing risks and emotions associated with money
  • Understanding the important role money plays in our lives.

How to use the frameworks

They are designed to help you deliver financial education across your curriculum in citizenship, PSHE education, maths and beyond, and can be used in a number of ways, for example to:

  • gauge students’ starting points for financial education
  • identify learning outcomes for lessons and schemes of work
  • map existing provision and identify gaps
  • plan for progression between ages and key stages.
