At Bordesley Green Primary we have a School Bank that is run through HSBC. The Bank is run by our Business Manager, Ms Hannington and a representative from HSBC, Miss Howes.
The School Bank is open to all children in year 3 and upwards and is run during lunch time once a fortnight on Thursday. The Bank is staffed by children from Years 5/6 and all children in those year groups are eligible to apply for a job each year.
Then there is an application process and an interview for each job. Following the interview, Bank Staff are appointed who help Miss Howes and Ms Hannington at each session. The children enjoy working for the Bank and the account holders enjoy visiting the Bank to pay in their money.
Children receive a very nice money box to encourage them to save when they pay in £10 and open an account. To open an account, an official application form has to be completed by both the child and the Parent for consent because the children are under 18 years old. Children then receive a paying in book and a bank statement to their home so that parents can help them keep track of their saving.
The next dates for the school bank are:
Thursday 11th January 2018
Thursday 25th January 2018
Thursday 8th February 2018
