What schools can do to keep the cost of uniforms down

The LGA have suggested that in order to keep uniform costs down, schools should;

  • Choose clothing that is widely available.
  • Choose logos or emblems that can be bought as sew-on or iron-on patches.
  • Pick a colour scheme rather than a full uniform.
  • Give parents the opportunity to buy and sell items.
  • Use a plain PE kit that can be used for different sports
