If your child/ren attends one of our primary, special or secondary schools, you may qualify for a school clothing grant. This is currently £55 per child.

Applications for school clothing grants for the 2017/18 academic session can be made until 31 December 2017 and are only awarded once per school year.
Please note grants are no longer paid by cheque.
School clothing grants will only be paid directly into the applicant's bank account, or a member of the immediate family residing at the same address. Payments cannot be paid directly into a Post Office Account.
