not seen anything advertised and its always been area dependant

neither did I see anything but was informed that the schools were told but the best about it was they never told the parents how good is that.

surely it would be on the gov site

checked the site after the phone call and guess what nothing they want you to have the £35 but dont want to tell you about it and if you have tree children in primary school thats £105 which is a great help

Just checked again and nothing is advertised at all yet the girl on the phone told me to spread the word as obiviously the schools arent

again certain areas have always done this, as you have said in your opening post "Dont know what way it works everywhere else" just phone you local authority and they will tell you, its nothing new

Got a letter home from my sons school today informing us of this grant so must include Northern Ireland.

glasgow has always had this,I think its about £50,remember my mil getting this over 10 yrs ago

I think London has always had this too but its restricted to children in year 6 ( going into senior school ) and children in year 2 and reception... something like that. And I think you have to apply in the summer term before the changes are to be made. Additionally I think they give uniform vouchers rather than cash. But definitely worthwhile phoning up to find out.

they have never had it in leicester which is unfair. Clothing all six costs a lot too.
And when they go high school the green (yuk) blazer is 40 quid each

What do they mean by low income? 20k, 15k, 10k or is it just more freebies to the cannot be bothered to work people.
