River Beach runs a school bank, working with NatWest in Littlehampton. Children apply for a role on the bank staff which changes each September and comprises of six Year 6 pupils. This ensures there is a Manger, Cashier and marketing team working. The Sandbank opens each Thursday in the Community Room where pupils who have opened a NatWest First Saver account can deposit their savings.
The team are keen to market the bank. They hone their numeracy skills as cashiers and learn how to manage a team and talk to ‘the public’ as Managers.
There is a bank assembly run by the team and we have a bank song.
