Top 10 tips to make going Back to School a little easier

It’s the phrase that kids dread and parents adore – Back to School. But it needn’t be all moans and groans (from the youngsters), because we’ve got a few tricks up our sleeve that are sure to get the little ones all fired up for that first day back.

Number 1 – A good night’s sleep
Getting a good night sleep the night before will ensure they wake up bright and breezy. Hello new PJs.

Number 2 – Get all packed up
All the cool kids have new backpacks for the start of term. And getting them packed the day before will mean there’s no morning panic on the first day back.

Number 3 – Super smart stationery
New bits and pieces like pens, pencils and notebooks are guaranteed to get youngsters of any age giddy.

Number 4 – Shiny shoes
New shoes are bound to put a spring in their step as they walk through the school gates.

Number 5 – Think outside the lunchbox
A new lunchbox are a must have for the new term. And our choice from Paperchase are almost too cool for school.

Number 6 – Send them off looking smart
It’s not uncommon for kids to have a growth spurt over the summer, so if you need any new pieces of uniform, you can find it at The Broadway.

Number 7 – Plan something special
Why not give the kids something to look forward to for the end of their first week back at school. You could even let them choose the restaurant from the Food Court.

Number 8 – PE prep
Don’t forget, it’s not just school uniform that they might have outgrown; their PE kit could do with a refresh too.

Number 9 – Capture precious moments
As we all know, school days fly by far too quickly. So remember to take photos and make albums along the way.

Number 10 – An apple for teacher
Send them off with a little something for Teacher in their bag and they’ll be off to a great start.
