You may be wondering, when is the best time to change your kids into their summer school uniform? As unpredictable British weather can be, there are many ways to work around this so your kids are ready to learn and play on sunny days.
When it comes to seasonal dressing for school, summer is the easiest way to get your kids ready in the morning. Life & Style help you kit your kids out with fuss-free school uniform for warmer days.
School Dates for your Diary
Many schools have differing start dates for when children are allowed to wear their summer uniform. The dates to keep in mind are from the first half of the first term of the school year (September – October) and throughout the entire third term (April – July).
However, some parents may be conscious of how long the kids can actually get to wear them as it’s not always warm enough. With a bit of planning ahead and checking the weather, you can make sure your kids can decide whether it’s a dress or shorts kind of day when they wake up.

Pleated Skirts and Polo Shirts Mix
School pleated skirts are a classic essential for winter and summer. Since they are darker in colour, you will want to combine it with light coloured girl’s polo shirts. Choose white, blue, yellow or green shades to brighten up your girl’s summer school wardrobe.

In case it’s looking a little windy outside, make sure they have a cardigan to wear in the morning. It will come in handy in case it gets chilly later in the day too.
Boys’ Summer School Shorts
When you think about boys’ school uniform there is always the worry of them coming home with torn or scuffed knees from their playground games. Luckily the summer weather is working in your favour, which means you can have a break worrying about replacing them anytime soon.
