Guidance on school uniform

28 September 2016

The DfE published non-statutory guidance in September 2013 relating to best practice on developing school uniform policy. There is no legislation in place that deals specifically with school uniform or other aspects of appearance, however, the DfE expects schools and colleges to take full account of this guidance.

The guidance is relevant to school leaders, school staff and governing bodies in all maintained schools and academies, and local authorities.
