Well I don't know who's wrong here, me or swmbo!
I bought the new uniforms this week (school logo'd stuff comes direct from the school). I bought 2 jumpers for the 6 year old dss, and a jumper and cardigan for the 4 year old dsd. Apparently girls don't wear jumpers to school?
I thought I had done quite well thinking that through, jumper for winter and cardigan for summer, but apparently I'm wrong!

DS wears cardigans. The logo jumpers don't fit over his head without considerable force. The logo cardigans are warmer than generic acrylic jumpers and last well. Some other mums have said that they'll hand down their daughter's cardigans to their sons. He favours shorts year round and the cardigans look rather good with them.
The uniform policy is just a list of approved items not gender specific. Girls can wear jumpers and vice versa.
(My grandad loved cardigans, he was not a man to mess with! )

I'm the partner. What he forgot to put is that I already made a list of two cardigans (as we already have a jumper). He forgot to put that my actual problem is that he always changes things to what he wants and does not know what we need or have. She wouldn't need two jumpers as she will have dresses but would need two cardigans. I know girls can wear jumpers but as she is the only girl (4 boys) cardigans are a rare thing to buy. I wish op could of been more specific lol
