How much does it cost to send your child to school? Uniforms, PE kit, lunches, pens and pencils, maybe a tablet – it all adds up. But to how much exactly?
Every year, teaching union NASUWT runs a survey to find the answer to that question – and increasingly, parents and carers are raising concerns about the costs associated with their children’s education.
UNISON is urging activists and members who are a parent, carer, or grandparent of a child aged between three and 19 to take a few minutes to complete a survey on the costs to your family for each of the school-age children.
This is NASUWT’s fifth survey as part of a campaign to highlight the issues faced by parents and carers to government and policy makers.
You can fill in the survey at surveymonkey.co.uk/r/JZGBW8J. All information is anonymous and you will not be identified. The survey closes on 18 January.
