Ministers back bill aiming to cut school uniform costs

TeachWell - Putting Education Professionals First

The government intends to back a bill from a Labour MP designed to cut the cost of school uniforms in England.

The legislation, drafted by Weaver Vale MP Mike Amesbury, would aim to strengthen existing guidance encouraging schools to keep down costs.

It could also force schools to keep compulsory branded items, like blazers, to a minimum.

An inquiry last year heard items like blazers embroidered with school logos can cost up to three times more.

The bill, whose details have yet to be finalised, will be debated in March and stands a much better chance of approval with government support.

The draft law has already received the backing of Tory MPs Huw Merriman and Kevin Hollinrake, as well as Lib Dem education spokesperson Layla Moran.
