The Uniform Grant is a means tested benefit, issued annually, intended to assist you in providing a basic school uniform for your children. The amount of grant you receive is calculated with reference to your annual household income and allowed expenses.

Uniform Applications for 2023 - 2024 school year are now available. You can complete the online application or print off a claim form. Term starts on Wednesday 6 September 2023.

To ensure that you have received your grant and collected your uniform before then we recommend submitting your uniform grant at least a couple of weeks before term starts. For parents and carers who are not in receipt of Income Support, rent & interest on mortgages will need to be submitted alongside the application form. If you have any questions, you can contact the Income Support team on 221000 or email

  • Guidance for Application

    • Not all applicants will be eligible for a full uniform grant.
    • It may be possible to assist with the funding of football boots, rugby shirts and football socks for secondary school pupils if these are essential items required by the school. A PE jumper or hoodie can also be issued in place of a school jumper where required. However, there is a limit to the amount of grant payable per child and these additional items may exceed the full grant. Comparing supplier prices may be advisable in this case.
    • Other than in exceptional circumstances, items of uniform that have been damaged or outgrown will not be replaced.
    • Every pupil who received a blazer between September 2022 and July 2023 will not be entitled to one this academic year.
