Parents must reconfirm every 3 months. Instructions can be found here.

If a parent misses their deadline, they will enter their grace period. If they reconfirm after their reconfirmation date, their next reconfirmation will stick on cycle.

If they reconfirm after their grace period ends, they cannot receive funding in the next term. EG if their Grace Period end date was 31st December 2018 and they reconfirmed on 3rd January 2019, they will NOT receive funding in Autumn term.
