Schools have a "moral responsibility" to keep the cost of pupils' uniform down, council leaders warned today.
Hard-pressed parents should not end up forking out for expensive uniforms because their child is attending a new free school or a converted academy that is "rebranding" itself, the Local Government Association (LGA) said.
It says that families do not have an "endless pot of cash" for new uniforms and is calling on schools to keep costs to a minimum.
