**School Bank**

We have been working closely with our local Credit Union and are very excited to announce that our very own school bank for saving will be opening VERY soon! Our school bank will allow the children to regularly save a small amount of money each week. We really want the children to realise the importance of saving regularly – it’s not the amount of money they save that’s important, but the act of saving. A little every week will soon build up!

The launch of our school bank will coincide with a ‘finance week’ that we have named ‘Mission: Money!’ and will begin next week. All classes will be taking part in a range of lessons which aim to teach our children how to be financially responsible through a variety of different activities.

We would like to invite you to our launch assembly on Monday 13th January at 2:30pm, where our local Credit Union representative and a representative from The Citizens Advice Bureau will be available to talk to you more about our school bank and how this will work, after our assembly has finished. You are then welcome to take your children home!

We’re very lucky to be able to offer our children this fantastic opportunity and hope that as many of our children as possible sign up to be part of this super financial initiative!

Thank you for your continued support,

Mrs Brindley-Jones
