PUPILS from Telford Junior School in Leamington are the latest to benefit from a Barclays money skills session.

During the interactive sessions last week, six Barclays volunteers shared their business knowledge working with 82 pupils from year four at the school. The volunteers delivered activities where the children considered personal spending, saving and the costs of running a home, discussed and explored needs and wants and considered value for money in the context of everyday food items.

Richard Siviter, head teacher at Telford, said: "In the current climate, it is helpful if children have an awareness of the demands on household budgets. The sessions with Barclays gave the children an appreciation of the differences between things families have to pay for, and items that it might be nice to have!"
