Oldcastle Primary School operate a school savings club in conjunction with Bridgend Lifesavers Credit Union. Your child will be able to pay money into their account every week on a particular day at the school and they will be issued with their own School Savings Book to keep track of their savings. The money can be withdrawn twice a year, once before Christmas and once before the end of the summer term.
Our school savings club offers an excellent opportunity for pupils to save each week at school. We aim to combine financial education, family engagement and promote partnership working within the community to help teach children from an early age the value of saving while learning valuable money management and life skills.
What is a credit union?
Bridgend Lifesavers credit union is a not for profit financial co-operative – which means they are owned and controlled by their members. They already run several hugely successful school savings clubs in Bridgend.
