Schools close to pupils on several days a year for in-service education and training (INSET) days. You will need to contact the schools directly for these dates, or check their websites.

School uniform grants

We currently do not offer a school uniform grant. If you require any extra support with school uniform please contact your child’s school as they may be able to provide spare or second-hand uniform to families in need.

Occasionally charity grants become available for school uniform. If this should occur we will provide further details.
