Money Sense Accreditation
St. Paul's is working towards the Money Sense Accreditation
This year we have been working towards becoming a MoneySense Accredited School as part of out commitment to teaching our pupils how to use money safely and responsibly. Over the year, Years 1 –6 have benefitted from working with volunteers from NatWest to run workshops:
Year 1 and 2 learned about how we use our money.
Year 3 and 4 worked with a budget to plan a class party.
Year 5 and 6 class have also worked with a budget to plan a class party. They also had the opportunity to become detectives to solve a crime of fraud as part of their workshop to understand the dangers of identity theft and fraud.
The children received a certificate and goody bag for taking part. We are very grateful to the volunteers from NatWest.
The MoneySense website www.mymoneysense.com has a Parents section where you can download activities to do at home. Your children can also explore a Virtual Bank to get used to the services in a real bank branch.
