Today Your Child Learned...
Dear Parent & Guardian,
We are excited to share that your child has completed the following PSHE lesson. Check out our overview and top tips to support their development...
Today’s PSHE Lesson
Pensions (How A Pension Works and Preparing For The Future)
From November 2019, providing you have paid or been credited with National Insurance contributions, the most you can receive from a basic State Pension is £129.20 per week. A pension helps to pay for your bills, food, clothing and more. Thinking about whether this would be enough to pay for the life that you’re currently living may be a sobering thought. This is why it’s important for our children to know how pensions work and how they can prepare for their future well in advance.
Go Above & Beyond
Here are some other ideas to support your childs PSHE lessons...
- Remind your child that getting into the habit of saving money will help them throughout their life and may give them more money to live on when they get older and no longer have a job.
- Talk about how you prepare for the future when you retire and that you may plan to move so that your costs may be reduced.
- Talk to your child about opening a savings account and encourage them to save some of the money they may receive for birthdays, Christmas and other occasions.
- Is there anyone in your family who could talk to them about what retirement life is like and living on a pension?
When it comes to your child’s development, teachers and parents are better together! By aligning our goals and education techniques, we can better realise our vision of positively preparing your child for their future.
