Assistance with school uniform

Planned maintenance to the Planning Portal

Due to an upgrade to the Planning Portal between 9am and midday on Saturday 21 October, customers will be unable to view documents on the site during this time.

You do not need to apply for assistance, as eligible pupils are identified in June each year.

Who is eligible

Assistance is available to pupils starting years 7 to 10 who are entitled to receive free school meals at non-academy schools.

Parents/Carers will only receive assistance once per year, however, if there are exceptional reasons why assistance is required please contact us.

Amount of assistance available

In 2016, assistance was provided in the form of vouchers for each eligible pupil.

Vouchers can be redeemed against the cost of dedicated school uniform through the supplier for each school.

The value of the voucher is:

  • £70 for pupils starting Year 7
  • £40 for pupils starting Years 8, 9, or 10
