Help with the cost of school clothing

If you would like to apply for a school clothing grant, and your child attends a school in Harrow, you will need to contact the school directly.

School clothing and related support can be obtained from the following:

  • If you get any of the following you may be able to receive an interest free budgeting loan from the Social Fund to help with the cost of school clothing:
    • Income-Based Jobseekers Allowance
    • Income Related Employment and Support Allowance
    • Income Support or Pension Credit
  • Some school governing bodies or parent's associations can help with school clothing provision. Their help comes from:
    • stocks of second-hand clothing kept by some schools for pupils who fall within its criteria for help
