Junior Newbury Building Society

Our financial education initiative for primary schools


We are passionate about providing children with the right skills to become money savvy and develop foundations for solid-long term money habits. 

We launched our Junior Newbury Building Society (JNBS for short!) scheme in 2008 to support the school curriculum by helping teach local children about saving and spending in a fun, accessible way. 

The scheme consists of a series of activities and projects desgined to teach children the entire savings process by opening their 'own' branch within the school. Role play, such as encouraging children to understand the role of a cashier, teaches the mechanics of a savings account in a fun and interactive way.

The scheme is completely free to take part in, and support is provided to teachers and children by Society colleagues from a local branch.

How does it work?

Through this financial education initiative, we are able to give back to our local communities, which fits with our purpose - ‘We exist to help our members build sustainable futures'.
