Credit Union – Junior Savers Club
CNEDCU currently have a growing number of junior members, (called junior savers – no membership fee is required). Junior savers can be any age from birth to 16 years, only pupils attending Hady Primary School can pay in on Friday mornings in school.
The focus of the credit union’s training of school staff and children has been on the educational value of the junior savers scheme. Children have been led in discussions around banks and savings and asked to suggest ways to ensure that they are able to afford the things that are important to them now or that will be in the future.
Why not help us by letting your childs school know about the Junior Savers scheme?
Junior Savers Scheme in Schools
The Chesterfield and North East Derbyshire Credit Union runs savings schemes for children and young people in schools across the area. Children get their own passbook and can save regularly in a more convenient and familiar setting.
This is a great opportunity for schools to have a positive impact, not only on creating a good financial ethos for future generations of the community, but the scheme can also be used to aid the teaching of financial capability to students. It is also viewed well by Ofsted inspectors.
We are already up and running in more than a dozen schools and we cover all types of school, infant, junior, primary and secondary.
Changes are afoot in our EYFS unit! We are excited to announce that from September, we will have a separate nursery alongside two smaller Reception classes. We have had so much interest in nursery places this year that we have not been able to accommodate everyone’s wishes for extra hours or morning vs afternoon sessions. This has resulted in disappointment for some families and in other families being unable to attend our nursery as planned. A designated nursery class from September will allow us to offer a mix of full and part time places, up to about 12 full time and 28 part time.
