Assistance with school uniform

You don't need to apply for assistance with school uniform, as we identify pupils who are eligible for this in June each year.

If your child is in primary school, we would advise that you contact your school to discuss any assistance or pre-loved exchanges. Find the contact details for your primary school.

If you still require further help accessing school uniform, please contact York Family Information Service 01904 554444 or email

Uniform assistant grant vouchers will be issued to eligible pupils in year 7,8,9 and 10 for the 2024/2025 academic year, with vouchers posted to eligible parents and carers in July 2024.

Eligibility for assistance with school uniform for the start of the 2024 to 2025 academic year

Assistance is available for eligible pupils in Year 7, 8, 9 and 10 attending maintained schools (Huntington School or Joseph Rowntree School). If your child attends a school within an Academy Trust, you should contact the school directly to enquire about their assistance.

Assistance is only provided once per year for the start of the school year. If you become eligible over the summer break and attend a maintained school (Huntington School or Joseph Rowntree School) we'll issue a uniform voucher. Vouchers will only be issued until the end of August. Please be aware that we may be required to provide your details to the uniform supplier if schools are closed. If you would prefer us not to do this contact us.

We will provide school uniform assistance in the form of vouchers to the value of:

  • £100.00 for pupils starting Year 7
  • £50.00 for pupils starting Years 8, 9, or 10

Redeem school uniform vouchers through our approved school uniform suppliers.

Academy schools

Contact your child's school in May of each year asking what assistance may be available if your child attends an academy school.
