The Melton Building Society is committed to supporting financial education in our local communities and we provide a financial education programme for local secondary schools and sixth forms, together with a Melton School Bank service for local primary schools.
The Melton School Bank service encourages pupils to save in a fun and engaging way. The Society has two savings accounts for children aged 0 to 16 – the Wild Ones Young Savers and the easy access Young Savers. The Society is working with our local Wildlife Trusts to raise funds to protect wildlife and we are giving away special Wild Ones Packs to children who open a Wild Ones Young Savers Account at any of our branches or school banks. The Wild Ones Packs contain a pocket wildlife guide, wildflower seeds and much more, encouraging young people to enjoy wildlife and get into the habit of saving. All pupils who open a young savers account at one of our School Banks receive a Melton piggy bank.
A member of our staff visits local primary schools regularly at the start or near to the end of the day to open the Bank with the help of the children.
If you would like some more information about the Melton School Bank service please contact Jane Gilhespy on 01664 414141 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Society also provides a financial education programme for secondary schools and sixth forms that can be tailored to meet the needs of the curriculum. For further information about this programme please contact Melanie Swainston on 01664 414141 or email email@example.com.
The Melton Building Society is sponsoring a financial education programme for Year 9 and 10 students at Long Field Academy, Melton Mowbray. The programme is being delivered by finance and education specialist, WizeUp.
“Teaching our students about managing their personal finances is an important part of our curriculum and we are delighted the Melton Building Society is helping us to achieve this,” said Craig Palmer, Deputy Head Teacher, Long Field Academy.
At the introduction of the programme to the first group of students Martin Reason, Chief Executive of the Melton said: “Education gives you choices in life and it’s important to make the most of your time at school. Similarly saving money not only gives you the ability to pay for the essentials in life (such as a deposit on a mortgage!), but also to choose to have fun when you want to!
