The Department for Education has published new statutory guidance on the cost of school uniforms. School uniform should never be a burden for parents or a barrier to pupils accessing education. This guidance means that schools will have a legal duty to take steps to keep uniform costs down. In all our schools, Uniform Policy is clear that we do not expect children to wear branded items, unless parents choose to do so. We encourage parents / carers not to spend a large amount on school uniform. It is there to ensure that if a child gets dirty or messy within their school day with the creative and fun activities we provide, items are easy to wash and are replaceable. Access to good quality second hand uniform, is available from the school with a confidential service.
The Department has also produced a resource aimed at parents to help explain some of the key changes.
