Still time for a new supplier!

Hurrah! The New Year is upon us, well - January has passed by very quickly - and before we know it, it will be the first half term of the year. But does the ringing of the New Year bells means it's too late to ring in the changes with your school uniform supplier? Not at all is the very simple answer. The key question I would ask, is what changes are you planning on making? If it's a completely new school range, then time is tight especially for maximising on discounts for bulk orders. Bear in mind that most of the manufacturers (not us "the resellers") are already making the blazers and embroidering for delivery in June. But, that said if the changes to your range are relatively small - then we still have many more months to go until parents need to order.  It's even better if you are simply looking at taking on board a dual supplier.

School Uniform in the 21st Century

A study in 2018 showed that only one in 10 employees now wear a suit to work. It found that seven out of 10 dress casually as it makes them more comfortable. And I would imagine that post pandemic those figures are surely higher - so why do we persist in dressing our children in blazers and ties for school? Recently, a local school had 100 of their Year 11 girls taken to the school hall, had their skirt length measured and advised to either change their skirt or to go home. Now, whilst I'm fully supportive of a school having a dress code policy and trying to enforce it - this seems all round to be a difficult scenario to manage. Parents battle with their teenage daughters to pull their skirt down, teachers would surely prefer to be in the classroom teaching not prowling the corridors with a ruler, and of course how does it make the pupil feel? I'm in favour of the primary school in Leamington Spa that took the bold decision to replace their traditional uniform with a tracksuit
