You will have a tub for the money to go into on the tuck shop stall.
At the end of break, Sales Managers put the money into the money bags you were given during training. They are labelled with the days of the week. If you haven’t been given any, ask your fruit to suit representative for a set.
This money needs to be put somewhere safe. Ask your Supervisor where to store it.
Once a week Finance Managers count the money.
Count the money once a week so it doesn’t pile up. Do it out of lesson time.
1. Seperate the coins into piles i.e all the pound coins together, all the five pences together.
2. Count the value of each pile.
3. Add the value of the piles together.
The money bags have the amounts of each coin written on the side. Try to fill as many bags as possible . Do not mix the coins in the bags.
The easiest way of counting the money is to use digital scales.
1p & 2p: A £1 bag weighs 357g
5p & 10p: A £5 bag weighs 328g
20p & 50p: A £10 bag weighs 161g
£1 & £2: A £20 bag weighs 192g
