Fortnightly Payment Due

The next fortnightly payment run is complete and due to reach accounts on Friday.  This includes attendance for weeks ended 25th May & 1st June, the last weeks of study leave for most, if not all, schools.

As before, if you have a query about the amount received, please contact your school or activity agreement worker in the first instance.

EMA 11-12 6th Year School Pupils

As detailed in your handbook, 6th year pupils are considered to have completed their course at the end of their exam period and are therefore not eligible for further payment.  The next fortnightly payment covers weeks ended 25th May & 1st June and as study leave finishes shortly, this is likely to be the last payment for most 6th years.  EMA Team wish all our school leavers good luck for whatever your future brings!

Those currently in 5th year who will be moving onto 6th after study leave must return to full attendance to qualify for continued payment until the end of term.
