Your views on school uniforms

On the ITV News Facebook page we have been asking whether schools have a "moral responsibility" to keep the cost of pupils' uniform down. Here are some of your views:

I totally believe that school clothing prices are ridiculous, just one school named jumper for my 6 year old son was £9.75!!!! That's without any other clothing.

Finally. Our school changed the uniform to a classic tie and blazer scenario and insisted on top brands like Trutex etc. They also changed all of the sports kits, so having 3 children this was a big hit.

– Tony Hanselman

Yes, they do , with the cost of school uniforms, school fund, and school trips, it's getting out of hand. I feel sorry for families today, I am so glad all my children have grown up.
