Apply for the School Age Payment before Sunday deadline

Bill Kidd MSP encourages eligible families with five year olds to apply for the School Age Payment before the Sunday 28th February Deadline.

This applies to parents who have deferred their child’s entry to school from August 2020 to August 2021, and to parents who are home schooling their children. This grant can be used for things like clothes, books and home-schooling materials, or anything else you need for your child. Additionally, parents who weren’t eligible when the payment opened in June but whose circumstances have changed may now be eligible for this money.

Eligible people can also apply for the new Scottish Child Payment at the same time - this is an extra £40 every 4 weeks for children under 6.
