Wendell Park Primary School
From the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, Wendell Park Primary School has been working with Enabling Enterprise since 2014 to develop a set of eight Essential Skills in their students. Over the years, students across the whole school have been developing their Essential Skills through Lesson-Time Projects as well as Challenge Days and Trips to Employers.

Pitch Perfect
The students started their day by meeting volunteers and learning about their hosts before touring the premises to get a better picture of what working there is like. Then they worked in teams to understand how banks can support businesses with their finances and started their challenge for the day. Their challenge was to secure a loan for a new business venture of their devising before running the initial set up of the business. The teams really had to demonstrate their Leadership and Presenting skills throughout the challenge, but especially at the end of the day when they presented their achievements back to a panel of volunteers.

We changed our target audience to overcome the problems we faced in the first year. We had to use our Staying Positive skills to make sure we kept going. We'd be delighted to see you in our shop!
Student, Year 6
I think it's so important to be developing these skills in children from a young age and I was really impressed with today's group. Very confident, great presentation skills and lots of interesting discussions.

Today was a fantastic opportunity for students to work with others they don't usually work with, from other classes or other year groups, and they had a great time doing it.
