Two months ago, Lidl brought back its school uniform bundle, allowing parents to kit out their kids for just £4.50.

The package has since sold out but if you missed out then fear not because there are still cheap options available.

This is because Aldi is also selling uniform bundles for the same price, and there are still some items up for grabs online.

We’ve asked the discounter whether there’s stock available in stores too, and will update this story when we hear back.

Are you eligible to get £150 towards your child’s school uniform?

AS a parent, you may be entitled to certain types of financial help, depending on your financial circumstances.

  • Some local councils provide help with the cost of school clothing, including PE kit.
  • The government provides an online central service to help parents find out if their council will help them.
  • The service will then redirect you to your local authority’s website, where you can find the relevant information by looking at the “Education” tab.

It’s also not just Lidl and Aldi who have come to the school uniform rescue; below we round-up how much you need to fork out to kit out the children.
