Citizens Advice not only gives advice we also research and campaign on local issues. We are concerned that the cost of school uniforms is becoming too great for many families and are currently conducting research into the cost of school uniform and how this cost varies between schools. The results of the survey and any report produced will be available on our website later this year.

Please complete one questionnaire for each school your children attend. If you have more than one child at the school please just provide details of one child.
