Back to School // Tesco F&F Uniform

We’re only two weeks away from the new school year starting, and I must admit that we’re all quite ready for it to begin. The Summer Holidays have been (on the whole) fun, and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the break from the school run (especially in my current pregnant state), but equally I am rather looking forward to having a routine again. I’m also looking forward to a little respite from the juggle struggle… well, until December and we have a newborn to contend with! From experience, I remember they love routine though… yes?!

Back to School preparations have well and truly begun here at Make, Do & Push! HQ; with the trying on of old uniform to see what still fits, the epic polo shirt clear out (how does Busby get everything SO messy?!), and the purchasing of new, fresh uniform ahead of the first day of term.

We’ve teamed up with F&F Uniform at Tesco to showcase some of their fantastic range ahead of the new term.

I’m already a fan of F&F Uniform after discovering their summer dresses in our huge local Tesco in Hull. The dresses wash wonderfully, they seem to be magically stain resistant from Busby’s messy eating, and they were only £5-6 each. Plus they came with matching hair bobbles which Busby adores.

For this post however, we’re featuring items from their A/W term range.

F&F school uniform is designed for busy, on-the-go children to keep them looking smart and comfortable all day long, all year round. Tesco are so confident about the quality and the durability of their school uniform that, if your child wears out their uniform within 100 days, they’re happy to exchange it.

I let Busby choose her pinafore and knee length socks, which she’s rolled down in these photos as apparently “it’s how all the girls wear them at school, Mummy!” after I suggested she wear them as, you know, knee length socks. But what do I know? I’m already the un-cool mum and she’s only 5…

Busby’s pinafore was a very affordable £6 and is super soft. I love this classic style of pinafore. It’s easy for her to get on and off quickly for PE… and of course those mornings where everything is running a little bit behind!

Her scallop-collared polo shirt came in a pack of 5 for £8.50 (again – great price!), and is made with a stain repellent technology, which I am very much looking forward to putting to the test. Busby often opts for a jacket potato with baked beans at lunch, and as you can imagine, her polo shirts frequently come home absolutely covered after a rushed meal due to eagerness to play football in the playground.

The cardigan pictured came in a pack of two for £10. Tesco’s school cardigans and sweaters are made with ‘as new technology’ to keep them looking smart, wear-after-wear. Again this is something I’m looking forward to putting to the test, because I’ve found the elbows and sleeves of cardigans often get everything from snot to paint on!

So far I’ve been very impressed with Tesco’s F&F Uniform; the pricing is very reasonable and the quality is great. Not only have Tesco introduced lots of new technology to their uniform to make it last longer, but F&F Uniform is Mumsnet Rated. Out of the 262 Mumsnet users who tested F&F Uniform from Tesco, 75% would recommend and 82% of those testing would buy again.

Busby will be putting the uniform to the test over the first 100 days of school, and I will be sharing an update over on Instagram later on in the year, to see how the uniform has fared against playground football, school dinners and general wear-and-tear.

100 days later…

So how is Busby’s uniform doing 100 days on? I’m happy to report it’s fared extremely well – even against baked beans and all manner of school art supplies! I’ve been especially impressed with the cardigans, which still look brand new despite being dragged around the playground, left in book bags, and washed at least once a week. H-Bear starts school in September *sob* so I know where we’ll be heading from his uniform staples.

    This sounds great! T is also a big jacket potato and beans fan (usually with ketchup which we donโ€™t allow at home!!) so he has very interesting clothes when he comes home from school. The 100 day exchange is a fab idea too, it almost sounds like a challenge!

      Haha jacket potato, beans AND ketchup??? Wow! I can just imagine the mess now…

      And yes – it is a bit of a challenge isn’t it? My internal monologue sort of says “challenge accepted!” xx

    Ooh we didn’t use Tesco but sounds like maybe we should have. Luca wears through all his stuff in about a week. And like Busby manages to get everything on his t-shirts as he won’t wear his jumper. He’s always covered in mud, whiteboard pen and paint when he comes home. We go through t-shirts like nothing else. Might go get some Tesco ones now though and see how they hold up.

      Yes! B won’t wear her jumper either when she gets inside, so the white shirts just get absolutely covered in food etc. I can’t wait to put these Tesco shirts to the test ๐Ÿ™‚ x

    What a lovely setting and she looks so smart and grown up! Tesco uniform has always been a hit in our house, if only for skirts and summer dresses as our school insists on logo’d cardigans and t shirts. A pain when a tshirt is twice the price!

    I am a huge supporter of supermarket uniforms. Whent older kids were little, there wasn’t so much choice for uniforms. Now with Tilly, she has Lidl this year and last. I love affordable uniform.

      Yes! Affordable uniform is great isn’t it? My mum said the same about not having much choice when I was at school xx

    Oh just look at her socks rolled down (something I remember all to well doing too!)

    We haven’t used Tesco this year but will defo consider in the future!

    Little Miss H and Busby sound so similar. Little Miss rolls down her knee-length socks and ALWAYS has a jacket potato and beans for lunch. She always seems to get so messy. So the “as new technology” and stain resistant fabrics sound perfect for my mucky pup. I do love F&F uniform. It is excellent quality and such good value. Fab review and stunning photographs. Hugs Lucy xxxx
