With children heading back to school before we know it, getting all the things they need for a new term can be pricey – especially if your child is going to be starting a new school this September. Recent research by VoucherCodes.co.uk showed parents with children starting primary school will spend an average of £210 on new uniform, shoes and stationery – for those with kids heading to secondary school, the spend is even higher at £263.

Parents with children starting primary school will spend around £210

“Whilst there are some items, such as school jumpers and blazers, that you usually have to buy from a specialist supplier, for all other items it’s well worth shopping around to make sure you’re not paying over the odds. Many of the supermarkets now offer amazingly good value, high quality school uniforms to make back to school a little less heavy on the wallet - with some items starting from as little as £2," says Anita Naik at VoucherCodes.co.uk

"For  footwear it’s well worth spending a little more to make sure your child’s growing feet are housed in comfy, sturdy shoes. But before you buy, make sure you check voucher sites to see which shops have a discount available."
