School Recovery 9: School Uniform Update

Thursday 16th July 2020

At the end of term, 26/06/20,  we updated parents/carers on our expectations for an expected August return.  The key points in terms of school uniform were

During the holiday period we have been working closely with our new uniform supplier, Academy Uniforms.  Like many businesses they have been impacted by Covid-19.   However,  they do expect to meet our tie deadline of the first week back to school.  As previously indicated our Parent Council are gifting the new S1 students with their tie and we expect to issue these to S1 from Wednesday 12th August.

We are working with Academy Uniforms on our blazer and expect to post soon a Blazer Fitting Guide to allow orders to be made online.  We will GroupCall parents/carers when this is live.   Given the Covid-19 context we will not be holding our ‘normal’ blazer fitting sessions in school.  We do not expect new S1 students,  and those who have outgrown their blazer,  to have their new blazer for August.  Full school uniform compliance by the October Break remains our expectation.

Parents/carers should also be aware that legally schools cannot mandate one single uniform supplier.  Schools tend to work with and promote one supplier but parents/carers do have a choice.  In this context we are aware that some parents/carers have engaged independently with Borders Embroidery (BE), our previous supplier.  This is not an issue.  We thank BE for their support over recent years but will no longer ‘promote’ them through our home/school communication channels.
