Thursday, 20th April, 2017 1:01am

· All elements of a school uniform should be purchasable from various stores

· Only ‘iron on’ or ‘sew on’ crests should be used

· Wherever possible, generic rather than branded items should be specified (e.g. uniform, clothing, IT tablets, sports equipment etc.)

· Provide parents with a list of all required items and indicate the likely costs of these required items at best value stores

· Provide a book rental scheme

· Ban the use of workbooks, which cannot be reused

· Where an exclusive supply arrangement applies, it should be tendered for regularly

· The Board of Management in each school will have to review the cost of items which they require parents to purchase and to make this information available to the school community
