This petition is to get as many signatures as possible for Schools in England to consider the future of school uniforms. 

We agree uniforms are great to ensure that all children are representing their school and are also attending school equal to all the other children in their school wearing the same attire.

However, with schools requesting embroidered items for their uniform policy, this is proving an expense that a lot of families/guardians cannot afford or making it difficult to source especially during new school terms and this year with the effects of COVID 19. 

As well as the financial impacts, this also adds extra stress to families to find these items even with school swap shops, with schools also striving to be more environmentally friendly this is also not an ideal option for that reason.

We as parents/guardians are asking fro schools to reconsider the uniform requirements, whilst we appreciate a logo helps with representation and pride, all we are suggesting is to consider changing items that are made specifically to the school, and asking for schools to consider iron-on patches.  This means that families will be able to shop more freely, reducing the stress of finding what they need and the financial impact to buy unnecessary expensive items that hold the school logo.

The end of life for these garments can be widely re-used amongst different schools, as iron patches can be removed. 

Please sign this petition to help change uniform policy and hope that we can follow the same suit as Wales who have already successfully made this change and is proven successful.
