Pye Bank careers week

Story by Ann Dawson,

Pye Bank School Staff and children at Pye Bank CE Primary School have had an amazing two weeks prior to May half term holiday with our careers and enterprise fortnight.

The careers theme kicked off with the staff dressing up in costumes representing jobs they have done or had wanted to do as a child. Parents and friends of the school were invited to come in to share their learning journeys with the children and explain how they got into their careers.

We had guests from fire fighters to fitness instructors, and from managers to professional musicians.

Many of our visitors had started out as pupils at Pye Bank School! We wanted our children to be motivated to be their best and have high aspirations for the futures.

For the entrepreneur part, each class was given £10 to create something to make and sell for a profit. Children contacted shops and businesses in their local community who were extremely supportive. All of our children were impressed and inspired.
