School Uniform Grant

If your child is eligible for free school meals, you may be able to get a school uniform grant of £125.

If your child is in Year 7 the grant is £200, due to the increased costs related with starting secondary school.

You can apply for this grant if your child is:

  • Entering Reception in September 2021
  • Entering school years 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10 or 11 in September 2021
  • Entering special school, special needs resource base or pupil referral unit and aged 4, 5, 7, 9, 11, 12, 13, 14 or 15 in September 2021

Funding for looked-after children is available in every school year.

You can only claim one grant for each child per school year.

Funding for the 2021 to 2022 scheme is available until the 31st January 2022.
