Skipton BS is doing its bit for the kids by launching a new issue of its children's savings account paying an improved rate.

Now paying 2.75%, Childrens Leap Account offers a return just below the best variable rate in the children's account market.

One thing to bear in mind is that the rate now includes a bonus of 0.5% for 12 months, making it essential that a review of the account's competitiveness is undertaken in a year's time.

Sure to prove popular with high street savers, this account earns four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
