Most schools in Kent ask children to wear school uniforms. Each
school has its own uniform policy. The governing body of each
school decides whether pupils should wear a uniform, in
consultation with the headteacher, staff and parents.
Cost of uniforms
In 1997, we stopped helping parents and carers with
the cost of school uniforms. This
decision followed in-depth consultations with local
elected members and heads of schools and was made due to the
financial situation of the authority at the time.
Unfortunately, the financial situation has not changed
and we can't offer you money to help with the cost
of school uniforms.
