Going back to school can be very exciting. Schedules return to normal, you can maybe grab a moment of peace after six long weeks and it feels like everything calms down a little.

However, the cost of new uniform can make a huge dent in any family’s budget. On average, uniform can cost up to £316 per child per year. A massive cost, particularly if you have more than one child requiring school supplies.

We’ve compiled this list to help you out. Lots of people are eligible for help with the cost of school so make sure you go through all available options to make sure you’re receiving all of the help you’re entitled to.
