Epinay School is a Business and Enterprise school in Jarrow, South Tyneside for over 100 boys and girls aged between 4 and 19 years.
The school’s vision is “to create a centre of excellence providing a stimulating environment for learners to achieve challenging targets and develop as creative and enterprising young citizens.”
As a business and Enterprise school we embrace opportunities for pupils to develop the key skills necessary for success in adult life:
- team building
- self- reliance
- problem solving
- financial literacy
- understanding of the world of business
The enterprising approach to the curriculum serves to engage young people whilst developing the skills necessary to enable effective participation and building aspiration.
Pupils engage in activities designed to promote their self- confidence and self-esteem whilst building the capacity to communicate effectively through participation in a range of mini enterprise activities, developing the skills they need to run their own company in Key Stage 4.
Pupils throughout the school make a contribution to the wider community by employing their enterprise skills in fund raising efforts for charities locally, nationally and internationally, developing global citizenship.
