If you are buying uniform bits & pieces, don’t forget the clothing labels.
These are a great way to avoid jumpers, coats etc going missing of getting mixed up with another child’s. We have been getting our stickers & labels from Stuck on You for the past 3 years and find them excellent: http://www.stuckonyou.ie/
Apart from a coat and a body warmer our son lost, we have not lost any uniform items so far. Thank goodness because they are not cheap!
I find most of the clothing labels packs will do you for 2 years, so good value.
We also got beakers with their names on them last year and they did them for the whole year, so we had no need to constantly buy them plastic bottles of water during the year. Cheaper and more environmentally friendly.
