So the school holidays are officially over and my children are back to class tomorrow! This time of year is always a rush to make sure my children have the best possible start to the school year. Over the years I’ve developed a checklist of what’s needed for that first important day back in school. For any of you who have left it last minute – here’s my quick checklist of things to make sure you have!

Uniform

At least one blazer

3 Shirts

Two skirts/trousers

2 P.E. Kits

1 Pair of trainers

Raincoat

2 Cardigans

2 Pairs of smart shoes

Equipment

Pens and Pencils

Eraser and Pencil Sharpener

Maths Kit

Scientific Calculator

Fountain Pen and cartridges

Ink

Notebooks

Folders

Folder slides

Scissors

Tape

Pritstick

Index Cards

Highlighters

Sticky Notes

Pencil Case

And last of all, a great backpack

This is probably the part that your child will enjoy choosing the most! Make sure to get a good sturdy one with lots of pockets. A padlock is a hand item to store inside the backpack too in case your child has lockers at school.

Good luck with the beginning of many school runs!
