School Age Payment re-opens on Monday 1 June. This payment is part of Best Start Grant and is a £250 payment made around the time a child normally starts Primary 1 to help with the costs of a child starting school. This money can be used for anything that families may need at this key stage in a child’s life.
You do not need to take up a place in school to get this. When to apply for School Age Payment depends on when your child was born. Applications will open on 1 June 2020 until 28 February 2021 for children who were born between 1 March 2015 and 29 February 2016. .
