The deadline for families to apply for the Best Start Grant School Age Payment is 28
February 2023. This one-off £267.65 payment is currently open to eligible families with a child born between 1 March 2017 and 28 February 2018.
Parents and carers – including those who have deferred their child’s entry to school
from August 2022 to August 2023 – must still apply before the closing date or they will miss their opportunity to access the School Age Payment.
