The Minister and Officers engaged directly with uniform suppliers on a number of occasions to discuss the development of the policy. These existing suppliers provided feedback on the potential impact of the policy. Although this feedback was recorded, no official minutes were taken therefore there are no documents to release. 


School leaders were fully engaged and kept updated during the formulation and development of the policy. This was through regular Ministerial meetings and contact with CYPES Officers. A working group made up of head teachers was formed to review the application of the new policy prior to its implementation. Feedback was taken on board from the working group and the policy was adjusted appropriately. 


The policy development was based on the Jersey Competition Regulatory Authority (JCRA) report. Please see the below link:
