Kilts Who picks the uniform?
School governors normally decide if pupils will have to wear a uniform, they also decide what it should look like.

Governors have to follow the rules below, they can't just choose anything they fancy:

1. Cost: The uniform shouldn't be too expensive as that causes problems for families with loads of kids or not much money.

2. Sexism The uniform policy must be equally fair for boys and girls.

3. Cultures and races: School rules must allow pupils from all backgrounds to wear a uniform. For example, allowing Muslim girls to wear appropriate dress and Sikh boys to wear a traditional headdress.
