i get the kids uniforms cheap from asda. their teflon trousers/skirts are great. i usually buy a skirt and a pair of trousers. i find that 2 polo shirts or shirts is enough but i know kids who have a clean one on everyday. the cardigan/jumper we can only buy from the school as they have the school badge on. they cost about a fiver which isnt too bad.

jami goes up to the secondary school and she needs hockey boots and socks. an all in one swimming costume. its going to be so expensive.

HI hun, how exciting for you, buying uniform etc.

I suppose it depends on what she wears i.e trousers, dress, skirt.

My girls have 3 pinafores and 3 white tshirts and 2 school jumpers.

Dont forget you will also need p.e. kit (usually shorts, school colour t shirt, plus something warm for outdoor p.e.) Also need plimsolls, book bag if your school has these and something for pe kit to go into.

I have always bought from either Tescos or mothercare, depending on who has the better offers!! lol

Our school also sells good quality 2nd hand uniform for £1 a piece which is really handy if you are getting to the end of a term and dont want to spend lots on replacing ripped/tatty items.

Good luck with your shopping Kiss

When Harry started school he started after everyone else so I had no clues about what to buy and how much, so I sort of played it by ear.

I started out with two pairs of trousers and 3polo shirts but quickly realised that I needed at least 6 polos because he's come out with pen/ pencil/lunch all over them everyday! Then I bought him a schhol fleeece and a sweatshirt for cooler days.

I got the polo shirts from Matalan, but the school trousers, fleece and sweatshirt I had to buy from the proper school uniform shops as they're all brown and not easy to find in Asda / Tesco etc

Also, the fleece had to have the school logo on so I had to buy from school but some places aren't too fussy with the logo whilst they're young.
