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!

Uniform can take a bit of a hit in all the action in the playground, but Argos, M&S 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.


The ultimate term time essential.

With lots to carry for school, a good backpack is always a great place to start. Sports Direct have a brilliant range of backpacks that are made to last and that will get them feeling like king or queen of the classroom. Plus, hopefully they won’t lose anything!


Think school smart.

We know that things can get muddled up very easily at school, whether this is coats, pe kits or uniform. Give your child the best chance of bringing the same things they left the house with each day back home by labelling everything, yes everything! You don’t need to pay for personalised labels to be made – simply head over to Hobbycraft and pick up a wash-proof fabric pen.


Stylish stationery.

Taking your little ones to buy some new stationery is a great way to get them excited about being in the classroom. Wilko and Hobbycraft have a brilliant range of playful stationery including colourful pens and pencils and vibrant printed pencil cases.


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