Introducing Learn and Earn

Kirton Primary School is proud to introduce ‘Learn and Earn’ - our unique Shop and Bank system. Learn and Earn has won numerous awards, featured on national and local television and in numerous newspaper articles both local and national, and has attracted attention from across the world.

The rationale behind our project is twofold.

Firstly, we aim to motivate and enthuse our children to take responsibility for areas of their own learning.

Our second aim is to teach our children the concept of and the relationship between work, money, saving and spending. Children from Y1 to Y6 are encouraged to bank their earnings by opening an account at the ‘Parliament Bank’. They have the opportunity to browse in ‘Kirton Stores’ to identify items for which they might like to save. Merchandise ranges in price from 3k to 100K. Throughout their time at school, the children will learn how to manage their finances by appreciating the connection between work and reward, the value of money, and the potential reward of saving versus the impulse to spend.
