The Starting School Guide For Parents... School Uniform

*klaxon* It's time for my 4yr old to start school! 

I've done this before but it was 9 years ago now and I'm rusty. So I am doing a series of School Starter's Guides to help me and other new school mums get to grips with what is needed when they start school and a few ideas of where to buy them...


Uniform and PE kit's are something that will occupy every Sunday night and week day morning for the next 15 years, excluding the holidays of course. It is something that will take up a large bulk of your pay packet and make you swear under your breath at the holes and stains that appear as if like magic from the very first day. Here is a quick picture guide to what to buy your little one before September starts, for a smooth start to the year.
