With the changing seasons these lightweight cover-ups are perfect to see them back to school

Welcome to the new school semester. A time of shiny new shoes, unblemished exercise books and much anticipation. Most children start the new semester in wintery clothes, but September’s weather can mean that a winter coat is now too heavy. So what’s the best cover-up? These lightweight padded zip-up jackets are just the job. They are also great to whip back out of the wardrobe come any rainy days later in the year, due to Marks and Spencer’s very own Stormwear (i.e. water-repellent) technology. Kids will be won over by the bright array of snappy primary shades while you'll like the fact that it also washes well, even at 30 degrees.
