There are various educational grants and bursaries that you could benefit from when your child is at school.
Your child could be entitled to either free school meals or a clothing grant of £100, or both.
If you decide to stay on at school or go to college from August 2017 you may be able to get an Education Maintenance Allowance (EMA).
