Message from our uniform shop - March 2021
In what is normally a quiet time of year for the schoolwear industry, we have received a high volume of orders as schools go back after a long break, during what has quickly become a mini Back to School period.
Like all retailers across the country, we have been protecting the jobs of our colleagues, working with a reduced workforce due to the current government guidelines and using the Furlough scheme. In preparation for the March 8th Back to School, we have un-furloughed colleagues and ramped up our operation to handle the increase in demand.
While our stores are still closed until April 12th at the earliest, all orders are coming via the web. Our operations team are working increased hours to pick, pack and despatch orders as quickly as possible. But with order volumes at our August peak levels, this is proving challenging.
We aim to deliver most orders within our service level but some may take a little longer. To provide extra help and support, we have increased our customer service team to handle higher levels of calls and emails.

Primary PE Uniform
From September 2020 we will be having a new Primary PE uniform. You will be able to purchase this kit from our uniform suppliers from the 1st June. The kit is compulsory for Reception to Year 6, with an option for Nursery children if they would like to wear it. If you child is currently in Year 5 and Year 6 they can continue to wear the navy PE top if you already have one. If you are purchasing new PE kit then please purchase the new colour kit.
We have taken views from parents, staff and pupils with the new kit. Giving pupils in Reception to Year 4 the option to wear PE kit all day on the day they have PE has worked well this year and saved teaching time and hopefully lost kit. We will continue this next year. Many pupils' feedback was that in the colder months they would like something warmer to wear. We also saw an increase of hoodies starting to be worn and coloured tracksuit bottoms. The hoodies are an obvious health and safety risk in school, especially during a PE lesson, so we have reflected on this with the PE department and introduced a PE long sleeved jacket. Knee length socks will continue to be part of the kit. We hope you like the new kit as much as the staff and children do!
