  • School uniforms in Scotland - consultation

    Created: 20/05/2022, Updated: 25/05/2022

    The Scottish Government has committed to introducing statutory guidance in Scotland which aims to address equality issues around uniform policy and reduce the cost of school uniform, as this can be a significant barrier to participation in learning.  This consultation seeks views on:

    • what should be included within the scope of the guidance
    • the role that school uniform plays within the ethos, culture and day-to-day school life
    • the considerations available to schools and education authorities in reducing school uniform costs
    • the draft principles which are intended to be incorporated as part of national school uniform policy

    This consultation is open to anyone with an interest in school uniform policy, but especially pupils, parents and carers, education authorities and education authority schools, and those who provide school uniform items.

    It closes for views on 14 October 2022.
