Savings accounts for under 16s. Encouraging your children to save some pocket money or birthday money is a great way to pass on the “saving mentality”. If you are wanting to encourage your children to save, we have two savings accounts designed for young savers.
Our Young Savers account is an easy access children’s savings account that means you can access your money when you need to. Young Savers is a straightforward children’s savings account that gives you the flexibility to pay money in, and take money out when you need it.
Our Wild Ones Young Savers account is a 30 day notice account. This account offers a higher rate of interest than the easy access Young Savers account but you need to give us 30 days’ notice if you wish to make a withdrawal. The Melton is giving away special Wild Ones Packs to children aged 0 to 16 years who open a Wild Ones Young Savers Account at any of our branches. The Wild Ones Packs contain a pocket wildlife guide, wildflower seeds and more, encouraging young people to enjoy wildlife and get into the habit of saving. New Young Savers can also choose one of our limited edition passbook wallets – will yours be a lizard, toad, rabbit, owl, harvest mouse or a seal?

How safe are your savings?
You may be worried that if you tie your money up in a savings account, it won’t be protected. However, the Financial Services Compensation Scheme is an independent body that serves as a last resort to cover most deposits, including savings up to the value of £85,000. So, if for some reason your bank or building society failed, your money is protected by the FSCS.
The Melton School Bank
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. 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.
