Fortnightly Payment Due

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

The next fortnightly payment is complete and due to reach pupil accounts this Friday, 25th February.  The recent in-service days do not affect your EMA.

As usual, if you have a query about the amount received, please contact your school in the first instance.

Aged 16 between 1st Oct ’10 & 28th Feb ’11?

A final reminder that in order to be considered for payment backdated to the start of the term, applications for pupils 16 between 1st Oct 2010 & 28th Feb 2011 must be received here by 28th February.

Any received after this date can be paid only from the week of first receipt.

Are you 16 after 28th February 2011?

A quick reminder that only pupils who are 16 on or before 28th February 2011 are eligible to apply for EMA in this 10/11 academic year.  Younger pupils are still in compulsory education and as such cannot be assessed for EMA at this time.

Guidance and income thresholds for the next 11/12 EMA session will be released as soon as possible.  The mailing list for new applicants will open on 1st June.  New application forms will automatically be posted to all current EMA pupils who are age-eligible to return to school.  Further information, including income thresholds for the new session, will be posted here when available.
