School uniforms

Guidance

Ask if the school offers a take-back scheme. This allows parents to purchase pre-worn uniform at a reduced price. If there is no take-back scheme, consider setting one up with other parents, or ask the school for advice. They may be happy for the uniform to be donated to charity or they could even set up a collection point themselves. They can contact their uniform supplier or Local Education Authority for advice. If the uniform is not suitable for reuse, it can be deposited in one of north London's on-street collection banks or taken to a reuse and recycling centre (RRC) where it will be sorted and recycled.
