September Blog: Let’s make back to school go as smoothly as possible!

Whether it is their first time going to school or they are going back to start a new term, it’s important to get everything organised so your little ones can make the most out of their new year at school!


We understand it can be difficult juggling lots of different things over the summer holidays, so to avoid a mad rush we have created a useful guide to outline everything you can pick up with us in just one trip to get your youngsters ready for their first day!


First, uniform.

We know uniform can take a bit of a hit in all the action in the playground, but M&S, New Look and Next have a wide range of durable yet affordable uniform. From gingham dresses and skirts to cotton jumpers and trousers, you are sure to find long-lasting uniform that will see them through a few more growth spurts


School trip essentials.

Come rain or shine, let nothing stand in the way of their school trip fun with some essentials from Mountain Warehouse. Alongside lunch bags and water bottles, they have a brilliant range of waterproof jackets, coats and footwear for any adventure.


Stylish stationery.

Taking your little ones to buy some new stationery is a great way to get them excited about being in the classroom. Primark has a brilliant range of playful stationery from colourful pens and pencils to backpacks with their favourite movie character on to keep everything safe in!


We hope they have an amazing school year and this guide helps you have a more stress-free start to the new term!
