Back to School

It’s that time of year!

The holiday season is drawing to a close and the kids are off back to school. We completely understand the nightmare of getting together last minute school clothes and stationary, amidst organising timetables and registration documents. So, we figured it’d be nice to provide some tips and solutions to help you ease back into the work and school routine. Take a look at our top 4 suggestions below:

  1. Purchase school clothes early. Make sure you don’t leave this until the last minute, so your kids are well prepared for September. There are several places you can shop: BHS, Marks and Spencers, Primark, Tesco and Sainsbury’s. If you know a friend who is struggling with last minute preparation for their children, SVM Global provide gift cards for all these fabulous brands!

  2. Ensure sufficient stationary. Again, make sure you are prepared. Thoroughly check the availability of different products in places such as WHSmith. Try and find out the syllabus for your child. If you know what they are studying, this will help in finding the right equipment ie. they might need a protractor or a calculator, make sure you think outside the box!

  3. Carry a to-do list with important tasks – ensure that you write down any important documents you need to complete, especially if your child is starting school for the first time. Have you completed enrolment forms? Do you need to fill in a form relating to school dinners?

  4. Stay strong! We know it’s sometimes difficult to leave your child at school, especially if you’ve had a lot of time off with them, or if they are just starting. It’s important that your child understands that they must go to school for their benefit. Sometimes, your child may be nervous, if new to school, so they need to know they can be supported. Introducing them to teachers beforehand, where possible, is a great way to encourage an easy transition.

We hope this guide might be helpful! Try to be positive about the end of the holiday season. It’s a chance to work hard and be successful. And it’s a chance for your children to thrive and develop in the education sector.
