School Uniform: Parent / Carer Information – July 2023

We understand that buying a school uniform can be expensive. That is why we have followed the government guidance on how to best support students to make this affordable.

We have taken into consideration:

  • The total cost of school uniform and all items of uniform or clothing parents / carers will need to provide while their child is at the school.
  • Kept the use of branded items to a minimum – these are the items of clothing including the KBA logo.
  • Ensured that our uniform supplier gives the highest priority to cost and value for money (including the quality and durability of the garment).
  • Tried to keep a stock of second-hand uniforms available for parents / carers to acquire.

Support and advice:

  • Unfortunately, we do not have a policy of purchasing every item of school uniform for our Pupil Premium students.  (If you would like any information about how we spend our allocation, please refer to our ‘Pupil Premium Strategy’)

In some cases we may be able to offer support for ONE item. If you would like to request the purchase of one item please use the link below or scan the QR code. 


Please allow at least 3 – 5 working days for us to make contact over the summer regarding purchases 

Further Advice:

Please note that if you would like any further information regarding school uniform or advice about purchasing our branded school uniform items or acquiring and of our good quality second-hand uniform stock, please contact:
