New badges

MARSHLAND St James Primary School and nursery has helped parents save on school uniform costs by offering an iron-on badge as an alternative.

Earlier this year, the Friends of the School heard about the iron-on badges and felt it would be helpful to give parents the choice of choosing these as well as the embroidered clothing, which until then was the only option available.

The new badges have only been on sale for a few weeks but are already proving to be popular with parents.

Headteacher, Sheila Day said: “We are aware that school uniform can make a significant impact on family budget and are glad to be able to offer this alternative solution.”
