Uniforms, stationery, rucksacks and new shoes. As parents seek out the latest deals and offers, we’ve looked at the best offers from ultralow-priced uniforms to funky pencil cases.

Aldi & Lidl:

Aldi and Lidl have launched bargain school uniform ranges in the UK with clothes starting from £1.50 made from 100% responsibly sourced cotton. They both offer a wide range of clothes, from skirts, trousers and polos for boys and girls. With school uniform as the main priority for parents, both low-cost shops are quickly becoming a go-to destination for families.
