Kids are always welcome at Metro Bank. They'll love coming in store to use our Magic Money Machines. Plus, they can open accounts for young people. And we help kids in schools too, providing financial education for the next generation with our Money Zone programme.
Kids are always welcome at Metro Bank. If you, or your child, has an account, they’ll love coming in store to use our Magic Money Machines. As well as opening accounts for young people, we also help kids in schools, providing financial education for the next generation with our Money Zone programme.
We don't just treat kids well in our stores – we like to help them in their schools too. Get your pupils money smart with our financial education programme, Money Zone. It teaches them how money, banking and personal finance works while they’re still at school.
More than 203,000 pupils learned about money through our programme in 2017.
Children get to visit a store as part of the 4-session programme.
Money Zone teaches the basic principles of money, saving and banking, using fun lesson plans.
Metro Bank Money Zone introduces Key Stage 2 and 3 (Years 4 to 8) pupils to financial skills, helping them understand how money, saving and banking work. Our sessions are ideal for incorporating into your school’s PSHE curriculum, and are linked to the wider government curriculum guidelines.
We teach the Money Zone Key Stage 2 and 3 programmes over 4 sessions:
Fun lesson plans, teachers notes, learner workbooks and activities for all abilities are part of the programme. These include learning about different types of banking accounts and basic tips on managing money. You can do all the activities during the sessions or keep some back for later extension work.
