Children’s Commissioner welcomes new school uniform guidance

Responding to new statutory guidance on school uniforms, Rocio Cifuentes MBE said:

“My team and I listened to almost 9,000 children and 900 parents and carers through my national consultation last year. The message was loud and clear: children are worried about their families affording everyday essentials, and parents are struggling to make ends meet. Paying for uniform was a significant worry for many, so I really welcome this much-needed focus on affordability as part of the new guidance.”
