Implementing government guidance on school uniform costs

Our Q&A guidance provides practical advice to schools about how best to review and implement the revised guidance on school uniforms that was issued by the Department for Education in November 2021 and applies to all English state schools , and takes into account feedback received from schools to date regarding decision making, tendering, costs, and branded items.

In most cases, schools will already be fully compliant with the new guidance, or will only need to make minor changes to their policies in order to comply with it. Our overriding advice to school leaders is therefore not to panic, and to work with governors and their suppliers to see how their existing uniform policies line up with the expectations of the new guidance.
