Helping children get a fairer start, the Scottish Government’s School Age Payment launched today. Applications for the School Age Payment can now be made for eligible families who have a child old enough to be starting school this August.

The payment will provide £250 per child, paid in the year the child starts school.

The application process will be open until February 29 next year, while parents who have deferred school entry so that their child starts school in August 2020 are also encouraged to apply in the current window.
