With less than two weeks until pupils return to school after their summer holidays, the council’s Policy Lead for Education is reminding parents to check if they qualify for help towards the cost of their child’s school uniform.
Councillor Yvonne McNeilly said: “It’s really important that people take the time to find out what financial help is available. The cost involved in buying school uniforms can be a real worry for some parents, but the uniform grant can help alleviate this. We are working hard to try and support local families and this funding scheme is just one way we can do that. It’s vital that parents make the most of it.”
