Uniformity of guidelines?

The Belfast Telegraph picks up on the Department of Education issuing guidelines on school uniforms to be adopted at the end of the current term – guidelines which have already been adopted in England and Wales apparently. The guidelines seem reasonable enough from what I can see at first glance.. Now, what about those other guidelines?The Belfast Telegraph picks out some key points on the uniform guidelines, I wasn’t able to find them at the Department.

Uniform guidance: key points

They must be affordable
They must be widely available
No exclusive deals with suppliers
Schools could face sanctions
Schools should consult with community
Human rights balanced with the general good
Schools must act reasonably over religious requirements
