School clothing grant increase

Eligible families in Moray are being encouraged to apply for the enhanced school clothing grant.

Those who are entitled to the grant will receive £100 towards school clothing purchases, an increase of £55 from last year’s allowance. One claim is paid per year, however those who received the lower rate this financial year are entitled to claim the additional £55.

Moray Council’s Chair of Children and Young People’s Services, Cllr Sonya Warren, said it is important that families receive the financial support they’re entitled to.

“Uniform is a significant part of school life. It reduces stigmatism inside and outside the classroom, fosters belonging within a school and adds value to pupils’ learning experience.”

Eligibility criteria and an application form are available on Moray Council’s website here

Nestling between Aberdeenshire and the Highlands, Moray stretches from Tomintoul in the south to the shores of the Moray Firth, from Keith in the east to Brodie Castle in the west.
