School Savings Scheme Returns
As everyone settles back to school we are happy to announce the return of our School Savings Scheme on Tuesday 12th September.
If your child already has an account with us, they can bring their book with their savings to school on a Tuesday morning and leave them in a designated area i.e., Reception. We then collect them, mark up their book and return the book to the school that day.
If they do not have credit union account a parent/guardian* can call into our office to open one for them. They will need:
- The child’s long birth certificate or
- A letter with the parent/guardian’s name and address that is dated within the last 3 months, e.g., a bank statement or a utility bill.
- Valid photographic ID (Passport/Driving Licence) for the parent/guardian.
If the child is age 7 or over, they must be present to open the account as well as be present for any withdrawals carried out on the account.
This is a great opportunity to teach children about the importance of saving from a young age as well as promoting independence.
We also run competitions during the year for our school savers.
If you want to know if your school is part of the scheme or if you have any other queries please feel free to call (028) 7964 2918 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
