News: Mum says £250 school uniform is ‘worth every penny’ and investment in children’s education

Another Lincolnshire Highlights news story…

A mother has spent hundreds of pounds on school uniforms because she thinks “it is an investment in her children’s education.”

Sarah Mennell faced a bill of £250 each for her two eldest children, and the mum-of-five says she does not begrudge spending the cash.

Her eldest daughter Tiamarie joined Kingswood Academy in Hull last year and her eldest son, Jackdaniel, joins this September.

Having purchased their full branded uniforms, including PE kits, the mum has spent more than £250 each, Hull Live report.

She said: “It’s a investment in their education. If the kids feel smart and look smart it really helps them and it helps them fit in.

“The children wear this uniform for nearly seven hours a day. The quality is better than cheaper brands and my daughter’s looks as good as it did a year ago. Having the whole school uniform really gives them a push and makes them feel proud.”

Mrs Mennell, also mum to Sydney, ten, Princess, six, and Albert, four, said: “I personally think the price is reasonable.”

She said: “I think you pay for what you get, if you want cheaper uniforms you will get cheaper made uniforms that won’t last. The quality and design is much better then cheaper options from supermarkets.

Although Mrs Mennell admits it is a big chunk of money to pay out, she says she budgets so she is able to afford it and even has uniform accounts for her children.

She said: “£250 is a investment and is easy if you save a little each time. I usually just save up a few pounds from a shop so any loose change goes into the money jar then in bank.

“It’s just been organised and prepared and every little saving does help. I got my uniforms now so that I don’t have to worry over summer, just budget and spread it out. We all know kids are going to need uniforms, we all know the start dates so give yourself a target to reach.”
