You may be able to get financial help with your child's school clothing and shoes. This help is called a 'school clothing grant' and is available from your local council.
It's normally a cash grant paid directly to your bank account.
The eligibility criteria (who can apply) and the amount of money you'll get depends on your local council. Everybody who gets a school clothing grant will get at least £100.
