Which, for 85 per cent of parents, according to the recent Cost of a Child survey by insurers LV, means it's time to pick up a new uniform. The big question is, where from? And, given the recent furore over girls' skirts, how high they're riding and whether it would be better to make everyone wear trousers so certain individuals don't need to be sent home to change on a daily basis, what should they be buying?
