  • Applications to open for School Age Payment to open on 01 June 2021

    Created: 27/05/2021

    Eligible parents of children aged 4 and 5 are being encouraged to apply for financial support worth over £250 when applications open on 01 June 2021.

    The School Age Payment is open to families who get tax credits or certain benefits and have a child who was born between 1 March 2016 and 28 February 2017. The one-off payment can be used for anything from a new pair of shoes to books or arts and crafts materials.
    Parents who have deferred their child’s entry to school from August 2020 to August 2021 should still apply before the closing date on 28 February 2022 - if an application is made after this time it will be too late.
