Get ready for term time with our school uniform checklist
Back to school might seem like an age away, but it’s never too early to start planning their term time essentials with a school uniform checklist.
Check out our school uniform shop for girls’ and boys’ schoolwear, ideal for creating the perfect back to school wardrobe.
Here’s our top tips for getting back to school ready…
1. School uniform
It may seem like the most obvious, but while you’re running around enjoying the summer break, it can be easy to forget that a new uniform is needed.
Invest in top quality white shirts, polo shirts, trousers and skirts that wash well and will last longer than the first term back.
A pair of comfortable and durable school shoes is another essential, especially if your child walks to school every day.
Top tip: Use labels and drawer separators to keep their uniform organised. Split outfits into days of the week for quick and easy access on those sleepy-eyed mornings.
2. P.E. kit
Like it or loathe it, physical education. is part of every school curriculum, and here at M&Co we’ve got all those girls and boys P.E. kit essentials covered!
Stock up on shorts, jogging bottoms, multipack short sleeve t-shirts and swimwear, ideal for gym class and after school play.
3. Kids’ underwear
But now you can make dressing for school fun with our colourful days of the week socks and briefs!
Mondays will never be dull and they’ll have fun matching their essentials to the day of the week.
4. School shoes
For all that playground fun and the daily walk to school, you need to find a pair of shoes that will last.
Black patent flat shoes are ideal school shoes for girls and short ankle boots will last all winter long.
It may be summer now, but rain is never far away in the UK so consider wellie boots as a school uniform staple! We have a fun range of character print wellies, perfect for puddle-splashing in style.
5. Kids’ jackets
Whether they’re getting the bus, walking home or love to play outside, a good jacket is essential for completing their back to school wardrobe.
7. Stationery for school
No school bag would be complete without a full pencil case! Invest in pencils, pens, rubbers, a ruler, highlighters, notepads and jotters for a gold star back to school stationery kit.
8. School bag
A new school bag needs to be large enough to store all their new stationery and homework jotters.
For character fans our Shopkins, Avengers and Finding Dory school book bags are perfect for carrying classroom essentials.
Top tip: Keep a laminated list of school bag contents inside their bag. This will help make sure they’ve always got what they need. Do a quick check each morning (or night before) for ultimate school day organisation.
