The department plans to publish the statutory guidance in autumn 2021.

Schools do not need to make any changes before the guidance is released. We want schools to implement changes in a timely and considered manner to ensure that parents do not incur additional costs from sudden uniform changes.

Once the guidance is published, all schools will need to review their uniform policies and make necessary changes as soon as possible to ensure that parents see the benefits of the guidance.
