Guidance on writing supply contracts for schools

The introduction of the latest statutory guidance on the ‘Cost of School Uniform’ in November 2021 mandated schools to consider a number of aspects where school uniform is concerned.


As part of these requirements, it states: “Where a school’s uniform policy includes a branded item, the governing board should ensure a written contract is in place with their supplier for these items.” It is therefore imperative that if you do not already have formal written contracts in place with the schools you are approved to supply that you look to introduce them.


To support members in this process we have created guidance on how to write these contracts. Please download our guidance by clicking the link here: Schoolwear Association – School Contract Guidance
