We made the right decision as he's totally taken to school like a fish to water. He's only on half-days through the end of August before starting full days in September but he loves school. He lined up and ran straight in no looking back that first day and hasn't looked back since. I'm so glad he's loving school and as much as I didn't think I was a uniform person (uniforms are standard in all schools) he looks pretty freaking dapper in his!
Shirt- Marks and Spencer
Trousers- Marks and Spencer
Tie- School Shop
I've blurred out the school logo on his blazer for privacy but we got all of the embroidered items (his blazer, polo shirts and sweatshirts) from Tesco online. It was way cheaper than the place the school recommended AND they donate 5% back in cash to the school so win-win!
Since he's got a teeny, tiny waist I wanted to make sure he got trousers with an adjustable waist so we hit up Marks and Spencers; their button down shirts also have velcro instead of a button at the very top so it's more comfy.
Clarks are as always our go to for nice, durable shoes. They measure kids' feet using an iPad now which BB found pretty cool, too. He also got gym/indoor shoes (they call them sand shoes here WTF?) at Clarks. I'm happier to pay a little bit more for higher quality shoes because I know they will last him a lot longer.
He loves getting dressed and ready for school and especially is in love with his blazer. Most days he just wears a polo top and sweatshirt and as long as it's not raining his blazer as a coat. I never wore uniforms to school so it's totally new to me and even though I wore a tie for 3 years waiting tables I still don't know how to tie one so that is a job for NotBlondeHusband!
Did you wear uniforms to school? Do your children wear uniforms?
