Ultimate Back-to-School Buying Guide for Parents in the UK: September Essentials

As the discount days for school uniforms approach, parents across the UK are preparing their children for the new school year. Whether you have a first-timer starting primary school or an older child going back into the next year, a comprehensive school buying list is essential to ensure your child is ready for the academic year. This guide will help you cover all the bases, including school supplies, clothing, and the often-overlooked but essential school hair bows and school hair clips.

Clothing and Uniforms

Next up, clothing. Depending on your school's dress code, you might need to buy uniforms or everyday school clothes.

  1. Uniforms: Check if your school requires specific uniforms. If so, buy enough to last through the week. There is nothing worse than having to re-wash midweek because you've run out of school uniforms. A good rule of thumb is to have at least five sets, one for each day of the school week.
  2. School Shoes: Invest in a good pair of school shoes and a pair of PE shoes if required.
  3. School Bag: A sturdy school bag is a must for carrying all these supplies. Sometimes the school issue a their own School Bag to save you searching for one.

Accessories: School Hair Bows 

One often-overlooked aspect of back-to-school shopping is hair accessories. School hair bows and school hair clips are perfect for keeping your child's hair neat and stylish throughout the school day. These accessories are also great for keeping your child's hair back and secure, which can help reduce the risk of dreaded hair lice.

  1. School Hair Bows: These are perfect for adding a touch of colour and fun to your child's hairstyle. They come in various sizes and styles to suit different tastes and school dress codes.

Personal Care Items

Don't forget personal care items to keep your child comfortable and healthy at school.

  1. Water Bottle: Staying hydrated is crucial, so make sure your child has a durable water bottle.
  2. Lunch Box: A good lunch box will keep food fresh and secure. Look for ones with compartments for different food items.
  3. Hand Sanitiser: Keeping hands clean is important, especially during flu season.

Preparing for the new school year can be overwhelming, but with a comprehensive buying list, you can ensure your child has everything they need. Remember to include the basics like uniforms, but don't forget the small yet important items like school hair bows and school hair clips. These accessories not only keep hair neat but also add a bit of personal style to your child's school day. Happy shopping, and here's to a successful and exciting school year ahead!
