A Norwich MP is hoping to canvass parents' views on the price tag of school uniforms.

Clive Lewis, MP for Norwich South, has launched a survey on the cost and accessibility of uniforms for primary and secondary age pupils.

It includes questions on the range of suppliers uniforms can be bought from, which items are required and the overall cost.

Mr Lewis said: 'Since becoming the MP for Norwich South, I have been contacted by parents with various concerns and queries regarding their child's school uniform. Many of these relate to the cost of providing the necessary uniform, or difficulties in getting hold of the correct items ahead of the start of school terms.

'I'm interested to hear more widely how people feel about school uniform and their experiences of buying it. Where uniform is compulsory, it should be affordable and accessible so no-one is left behind.'
