Mini M starts school in a few weeks.
That’s traumatic enough for me but there’s also the school uniform debacle
We’ve got him some trousers & short sleeve shirts but this weekend we will have to bite the bullet & get the rest of his uniform
By that I mean we will have to go to the 1 shop that sells the badged items
I don’t remember all this when I was at primary school
We had a tie & that was it
Mini M has to get a tie & a school badged jumper
He then has to have a book bag. I know the idea of this was so that all kids are the same but I could buy a cheap bag in primark!
Then we get to the pe kit, this needs to be badged but he needs an outdoor & indoor pe kit! Surely if the weather’s bad he won’t be doing pe outside!!
I’ve heard people say their school uniform has cost over £200 and I have to admit I thought they were crazy but now I see why
Do the kids really need all this badged stuff?? And if so why is it only available from one place?
I’ve got friends all over the country & everyone is the same, one friends little boy even has to have a badged polo shirt which he has to wear under his badged jumper!
Do you have the same problem at your school?by
