School uniform

Most schools require pupils to wear a school uniform. The individual school prospectus sets out its policy on school uniform.

We no longer issue a Crisis Clothing Grant. This brings us in line with most other local authorities who removed this grant some time ago.

If you are having difficulty with providing your child with a school uniform, please consider:

  • contacting the school your child attends to discuss it with them
  • purchasing second hand items from school scheme (where applicable)
  • checking with Job Centre Plus or Citizens Advice Bureau that you are getting all that you are entitled to in terms of benefits
  • purchasing items from main street supermarkets at reduced prices
  • discussing with any professionals outside of school that you and your children may be involved with to see if they have any suggestions
