This toolkit is designed to get everyone talking about The Cost of the School Day. Ideally all members of your school community - teaching staff, parents, children and young people – should have input into making Cost of the School Day changes. The toolkit will guide everyone through the process of making those changes, from discussing the issues around school costs, to finding approaches and projects which suit your school.
Every school is unique, so this toolkit helps you to develop a unique plan, to make a difference to children and young people in your area.
You can download the full Cost of the School Day toolkit here or browse the different sections below and pick the resources which are most relevant to you.
Also available: The Cost of School, a film resource from NHS Health Scotland.
