Document School Uniform Review (2010-2011)

The Children & Young People Overview & Scrutiny Panel are undertook a review to examine the affordability of school uniforms This review was developed as a result of the combination of research undertaken by the Citizens Advice Bureau on Education Costs and through a motion to full Council, to sign up to the 'End Child Poverty Now' Campaign. Following this our Local Strategic Partnership has agreed to Commission a Child Poverty Assessment which the findings of this review will feed into. This review did not investigate options to provide financial assistance towards the cost of school uniforms, but whether our school uniform Policies/ Policy approaches within schools across the Authority are consistent, fair, effective and affordable. It also examined whether the cost and impact of school uniform policies excluded some families/ children when selecting schools.
