Santa’s made his list and he’s checking it twice! So it’s time to get your applications in for EMA – especially if your 16th birthday is on or before the 28th February 2017. Applications take around 6 weeks to be assessed and processed. You can get an application form from the Falkirk Council website or from your school.
23 sleeps until Santa visits which means that mail deliveries are getting busier and busier. This means that letters such as entitlement/assessment letters or remittance slips may take a bit longer than usual to arrive.
Remittance slips, which normally arrive on a Thursday of a payment week, may not arrive until later. This won’t necessarily mean that you will not receive payment – please wait until you have checked your bank account on the Friday before you call.
The payment dates in December are 16th and 23rd. The first payment date in January is 10th January 2017.
The next timetabled payment run for attendance in weeks ended 4th & 11th November is complete and due to reach accounts on Friday 18th November. As before if you have any issues with payment please speak to the school in the first instance.
