The RBS Personal Finance Education Awards for Schools have been extended this year to include primaries.

RBS created the awards three years ago to raise the profile of personal finance education and spread best practice in this area.

The prizes across all categories are: pound;1,500 for the winning school, pound;500 for runners-up, a laptop for individual winners and iPod shuffles for runners-up.
