LAT and EKCST will seek funding from the Department for Education to ensure that all parents and carers of current students in years 7-10 will be supported to purchase any new bespoke uniform items required by each of the new schools which are different to those required now. Parents and carers of year 7 pupils starting in September 2024 will be given details of the uniform items that are required in due course and will be expected to fund these themselves as they would have done if OAIS had remained open.
