Grantham pupils get a lesson in looking after their money

Isaac Newton Primary School pupils proved to be a class act when colleagues from The Nottingham’s Grantham branch visited to lead a lesson in looking after their money.

Branch manager Sophie Beck and customer services assistant Faith Redmile-Hayes dropped into the Grantham school to see what the youngsters know about spending versus saving.

Two groups of 30 children took part in a session on ‘needs versus wants’ and lots of interactive conversation around the importance of saving for the future. Arrangements are being made for another visit to the school in the autumn.

Sophie said: “The classes seemed to thoroughly enjoy the session and were all very happy with the certificate and activity books we gave them to take home.

Headteacher Chris Heathcote said: “A big thank you to the team for giving up their time to come and work with us – the sessions were great. We are looking forward to them visiting us again in the new school year.”
