Thank you to the many schools who are already compliant with the statutory guidance on the cost of school uniforms which came into force this month.
If your school is not yet compliant, check the requirements for schools section for actions you need to take now.
If you need to run a competitive process to set up a new contract, you should have the contract in place by December 2022, working with suppliers to agree a sensible transition period. This will mean that new uniforms can be available for summer 2023.
All schools should be fully compliant with the guidance by summer 2023. Some schools might be tied into existing contracts with suppliers and may not be able to meet some elements of the guidance until their contract is due for renewal, which may be later.
