Schoolchildren given lessons on managing money

Schoolchildren in Hampshire have been learning about how to manage debt.

Swaythling Primary School has set up a savers club, an initiative with the Solent Credit Union, to encourage children to learn the value of money.

The five to nine-year-olds have been attending the club for 18 months and teachers are hoping to make it part of the curriculum.
