EMA Payment schedule 2017/18

The payment schedule shows the dates that EMA payments should reach pupils’ bank accounts and which weeks are covered by those payments. The full schedule can be downloaded by clicking here.

Please note;

  • Pupils will not start to receive payments until their application has been processed and they have received an acceptance letter from South Lanarkshire Council. (Application forms are available in the school office)
  • All S5/6 pupils should have completed a learning contract the induction days in May/June, which also acts as their EMA learning agreement.
  • Please note that pupils will not receive an EMA payment for a week in which they have an unexplained absence or unacceptable number of lates. If a pupil is absent for more than a week please submit a medical certificate or doctor’s letter to their Pupil Support teacher.
