School Tuck Shop

Every year the year 5 children take on the running of the tuck shop.  After initial training, producing a business plan, a logo, looking at costing and profit margins, each team has a period of time to run the shop and build as much profit as they can.  During the running of the shop, each group complete stock take checks and carry out further market research. 
The group is responsible for all the money, paying suppliers, keeping records and ordering further units.
 
This is a fantastic opportunity for children at Buckminster School to learn about business and finance and how to set up and operate a sustainable healthy tuck shop which will contribute to the school's overall well being.
