About school clothing grants

Governors decide school dress codes and any complaints about uniforms need to be raised with them. The head teacher’s role is to make sure pupils comply with the dress codes.

We may be able to offer a grant to help with the cost of school clothing and footwear for your child, when:

  • you are on benefits and under certain financial hardship
  • your child needs extra clothing for medical reasons
  • clothing has been lost or destroyed

Clothing grants are made at our discretion and we have no legal obligation to provide them.
