    When DD1 starts prep next year she will be changing out of her uniform as soon as she gets home.

    We have a 14 year old who lives with us and its her responsability to get changed and have her uniform in the wash. If it gets left in her room or whatever then tough, she has to live with it. She is old enough to do it herself and know if she has clean ones ready or not.

    This is me too. As soon as they get in the door its straight to your room and uniforms off. Plus DSs was SO expensive, and he is straight into the yard to play soccer or on the trampoline and he would probably rip stuff!

    Not so much a rule but he will usually just strip down into undies when he gets home anyway as its mich cooler.

    I prefer him to have his uniform off anyway.

    We don't have any rules. DS is in his uniform until bath time usually. I prefer it that way... means less washing.

    Glad I'm not the only one without a rule at least. I can definitely see the merits in changing and might introduce it down teh track but at the moment it's one less thing to enforce - he's struggling a bit with the transition to school and as soon as he's home just wants to play, play, play. At least his polo shirt is dark green so I'm not too worried about dinner stains etc. I put a wash on once the kids are stripped off for the bath and all dry and ready to go by morning!

    Yep straight off and he has a shower, if his play clothes make it through dinner unscathed he will wear them again after school the next day. He wears a clean uniform each day.

    Ds stays in his uniform until bath time .

    Means less washing for me.

    He has enough school clothes and he wears a fresh pair every day.

    Nope, I don't want her to wear 2 sets of clothes in a day. Wear and tear isn't a concern here, her bottoms and her sports shirts she's had since prep, the 3 academic shirts she's had since the start of year 3 and even her socks have just needed 1 pair replaced since Prep and she's in year 3 now. If we are going to the shops it's normally straight after school anyway.

    Same here

    DS attends a public school, where the uniform is a polo shirt and shorts (long pants & jumper in the winter) Not expensive items, and are easily replaced at a low cost.

    If he was attending a school with the whole hat, shirt, tie, blazer etc.......then it would come off and into play clothes

    The only strict rule we have, is washing hands as soon as we arrive at home.

    DS has just started prep this year. He just stays in his uniform until his bath. I wash everything once it's been worn so I see little use in him taking it off earlier. Would just mean more washing!
