Kids School Uniforms and Back to School Essentials

It’s that time again! We’ve survived enough school runs, muddy after-school football clubs and overnight growth spurts to know just about everything there is to know about school uniforms, sports kit and back to school essentials. We’re busy putting together some great little videos (sponsored by M&S) to help you with school uniform shopping, how to tie a school tie, easy hairstyles for long hair, educational apps and some tips on making learning fun. In the meantime, we’ve handpicked the best pieces from the School Uniform Shop at M&S!

Like many M&S products, they have both an “anti-crease” technology so you don’t need to iron them, but also a “super-crease” technology so that the sharp crease down the centre of the leg stays sharp. They also have an adjustable waist and some hemming magic so when you child has a mysterious growth spurt overnight you can adjust them to fit with very little effort.[/et_pb_blurb][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”1_3″][et_pb_blurb admin_label=”White shirts” title=”White shirts that will stay white” url=”http://www.awin1.com/cread.php?awinmid=1402&awinaffid=96878&clickref=whiteshirt&p=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.marksandspencer.com%2F2-pack-boys-ultimate-non-iron-long-sleeve-shirts-with-stainaway%2Fp%2Fp22305977%23″ url_new_window=”off” image=”http://reallykidfriendly.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/Marks-and-Spencer-School-Uniform-White-Shirt-.jpeg” alt=”Marks and Spencer School Uniform – Crease Free Grey Trousers” animation=”off” background_layout=”light” text_orientation=”left” use_icon=”off” icon_color=”#7EBEC5″ use_circle=”off” circle_color=”#7EBEC5″ use_circle_border=”off” circle_border_color=”#7EBEC5″ icon_placement=”top”]How many shirts did we go through that first year??! Danger Boy seems to be able to keep his white shirts white for about a minute, so we are DELIGHTED to have discovered these M&S shirts. Firstly, they have “Stain Away” technology which means that they actually resist stains and are easier to clean. Secondly, M&S’ standard anti-crease tech you don’t have to spend your whole life ironing. Thirdly, the sleeves on the smaller sizes (up to age 8) have a special design that makes it super easy for your kids to fasten their own cuffs – your kids will thank you when they realise they don’t have to ask the teacher to help them get dressed after sports or swimming club.[/et_pb_blurb][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”1_3″][et_pb_blurb admin_label=”Best sports kit: Affordable base layer!!” title=”Best sports kit: Affordable base layer!!” url=”http://www.awin1.com/cread.php?awinmid=1402&awinaffid=96878&clickref=baselayer&p=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.marksandspencer.com%2Fboys-long-sleeve-top%2Fp%2Fp22308716%23″ url_new_window=”off” image=”http://reallykidfriendly.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/Marks-and-Spencer-School-Uniform-Base-Layer.jpeg” alt=”Marks and Spencer School Uniform Base Layer” animation=”off” background_layout=”light” text_orientation=”left” use_icon=”off” icon_color=”#7EBEC5″ use_circle=”off” circle_color=”#7EBEC5″ use_circle_border=”off” circle_border_color=”#7EBEC5″ icon_placement=”top”]This is hands down the most affordable “base layer” we have ever come across – while our local school uniform shop sells these for an eye-watering £50, the base layers we found at M&S were literally a fiver. While they aren’t officially on your school uniform list, ALL of the kids at our school wear base layers under their sports kit, games kit, and for after-school football and netball clubs during the colder months so in our books they are absolute essentials.[/et_pb_blurb][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_cta admin_label=”Call To Action” title=”Visit the M&S School Uniform Shop” button_url=”http://www.awin1.com/cread.php?awinmid=1402&awinaffid=96878&clickref=schooluniform&p=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.marksandspencer.com%2Fs%2Fkids%2Fschool-uniform” button_text=”Visit M&S School Uniform Shop” use_background_color=”on” background_color=”#7EBEC5″ background_layout=”dark” text_orientation=”center”]

M&S have a huge range of Back to School essentials in their School Uniform Shop, including the items we’ve handpicked but also trainers, cute character lunchboxes, and basics like vests and tights.
