Further to our recent communications regarding the orders for school uniform, we would like to update you with the following:
In recent years we have had reliable service from the school uniform company which we use and they have always ensured that our new uniform order has been with us in time for the new term.
Yesterday we didn't receive our ordered items and we tried to contact the company with no success via phone or email.
Today, we have tried on several occasions and using various telephone numbers but we have still had no success. Although we have no proof or confirmation, we are assuming that the company may have gone out of business over the summer. This is only supposition, but it is looking more likely as an explanation. We shall continue to attempt to make contact with them and indeed we are checking with other schools as well.
However, we are also making rapid investigations into an alternative supplier and will be continuing the research this evening (Tuesday 4th) and into tomorrow.
We shall update parents on this website and via Parentmail as we know more.
In the meantime, parents are asked that if their children are without key items of the branded uniform, that they come to school in own clothes which are as near as possible to school uniform.
We apologise for the unfortunate position we are in, but it is beyond our immediate control. We look to have a satisfactory solution very soon.
