Cost of the School Day Toolkit
There are countless ways in which schools can address costs, overcome financial barriers for children and young people and support families on low incomes. Understanding the Cost of the School Day in your own school or local authority area is a crucial first step.
The resources in this toolkit are here to help you talk with colleagues, pupils and families about school costs. Schools and local authorities using these resources have been able to implement a range of impactful policy and practice changes to support children and families on low incomes.
Also available: The Cost of School, a film resource from NHS Health Scotland.
