The Uniform Grant is a means tested benefit, issued annually, intended to assist you in providing a basic school uniform for your children. The amount of grant you receive is calculated with reference to your annual household income and allowed expenses.

Applications for the 2020-2021 school year are now available, you can complete an online application by following the link at the bottom of this page, we also have paper forms available upon request. For parents and carers who are not in receipt of Income Support, proof of income, rent & interest on mortgages will need to be submitted alongside the application form. If you have any questions, you can contact the Income Support team on 732508 or email incomesupport@gov.gg.

In order to receive the school uniform grant before the start of the Autumn Term, applications must be submitted by Monday 17 August. However, applications can be made up until the Easter holidays.

A PE jumper or hoodie can also be issued in place of a school jumper where required. However, there is a limit to the amount of grant payable per child and these additional items may exceed the full grant. Comparing supplier prices may be advisable in this case.
