Freshly-ironed school uniforms, brand-new pencil cases and shoes that haven't been scuffed.

September means just one thing for parents - school. Whether little ones starting big school or returning to an old class, the month is dominated by schedules and acclimatising to a new school year after a summer break.

This September might look a little different for parents, as the current coronavirus pandemic casts uncertainty over how schools will be able to progress.

Usually in that first month of the new academic year, our photographer will visit schools in the area to take photos of the new first class of that year or photos will be sent in to us.

Today, we taken a look back into the archives to unearth the school pictures from the years 2016 and 2017.

Can you spot anyone you know?
