Schools have been told to keep the cost of uniforms to a minimum after it emerged parents were having to fork out for new ones just because schools had converted to academies.
A Department for Education spokesman said: "We published guidance last year which states that schools should keep uniform costs to a minimum and prioritise value for money for parents.
"It also makes clear that schools should avoid frequent changes to uniform."
