Uniform sweatshirt/cardi question

DD's primary school have changed their logo so it's a brand-new uniform from September.

They're using the on-line 'your school uniform' website to order from.

DD has always worn cardigans - she's not keen on jumpers or things that pull over her head, and is a dab hand at buttons.

On the website, they have the coat, pe kit, book bag, hat etc, but only give the option of either a normal sweatshirt or one with a zip-neck. No cardigans at all. The previous uniform with the old logo included cardigans but was ordered via the office not this website.

Given that nearly all the girls at her last school wore cardis and only the boys wore the sweatshirts, would it be very PBF of me to ask the school if they could add a cardigan option (or does it cost them a bomb to do it or something)?

They might have forgotten to put it on the list if it's a new contract. No harm in emailing them - you won't need cardigans for the first few weeks hopefully. I think most uniform suppliers have access to thousands of different garments so I can't imagine it will be expensive.

I would definitely ask - my daughter would refuse to wear a sweatshirt or jumper and only likes cardigans too so I can see the problem. the zip neck MIGHT be seen as acceptable by her if that was her only option but definitely ask.

If I were you, I'd just buy a plain cardi in the right colour. I bet they don't even notice.

Thanks - I'd already got her a couple of supermarket cardis in the right colour so I'll just use those.

They're giving every child one free sweatshirt so she'll have that if they want one for school pics etc, but will see if they can add the cardigan.
