The MoneySense School Accreditation programme was set up to enable primary schools to publicly demonstrate their commitment to financial education and to demonstrate to parents and the community how important their school believes it is for young people to understand money and how to use it safely and responsibly.
Both pupils and parents are encouraged, through MoneySense, to gain more knowledge and confidence about money. In 2019, Studfall Junior Academy completed all the criteria to become a MoneySense Accredited school, and as part of the process welcomed volunteers from NatWest who assisted in running workshops with Year 6. The pupils worked in groups to plan and present a fully costed, reasonably priced birthday party, which helped them learn about budgeting. The MoneySense website 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 branc
