The Real Cost of School in 2018

With all this good weather it’s hard to imagine that the new school year is right around the corner, but many parents are already counting down the days to the new term as they struggle to find the money for new books, uniforms and voluntary contributions.

Every year Barnardos informs the Government just how much parents are spending to send their children to school and we remind the Government of their responsibility to deliver truly free education for all.

But we can’t do this without YOUR input!

If you have a child in school, please spare 5 mins to take Barnardos’ School Costs Survey and let us know how much you spend getting ready for the new school year.

 If you have a child in primary school:

Take our primary school survey

 If you have a child in secondary school:

Barnardos will base its recommendations to the Government on the information you provide. Your input is vital.

Share the Survey

Do you have friends or family who might like to complete the survey too? Be sure to share it far and wide! The more responses we get, the stronger case we can make to the Government.
