School Uniform and Equipment

COVID-19 Uniform update from our supplier

I am sure that in the current times the need to purchase school uniform is not necessarily the first thing on your mind. Following discussions with our uniform provider we wanted to update you on their current service provision.

You may well be aware that Premier Schoolwear is based in Harold Hill for Havering Schools. At present, in line with government guidelines, their trade counter is closed. Whilst social distancing measures are in place this will remain the case as the trade counter could not accommodate more than one family at a time with the current guidelines.

Premier Schoolwear continues to provide an online service and is taking orders via the internet. Any orders over £75 do not incur a delivery charge. You can also have this cost removed by asking for the order to be delivered free of charge to the school. We will then notify you when your order arrives for collection.

From Monday 18th May, there will be staff taking phone calls and responding to emails in order to provide the best possible service to you that they can in the current circumstances to meet the uniform requirements. They will take orders over the phone and respond to any queries you may have.

Premier Schoolwear are working with their web designer to create a click and collect service and once confirmed we will send you further details.

The phone number for Premier Schoolwear is 01708 377699, to reiterate there will be no service in person at the store whilst current social distancing measures are in place.

We hope that you find this useful and planning your uniform as far in advance will be helpful to the uniform provider and ensure that all uniform items are with you in good time.

We believe that our students should wear their school uniform with pride.

We remind students that whilst they are wearing the Sanders School uniform they represent the school, their peers, the staff and whole school community.

We will not tolerate incorrect or incomplete uniform and we have a policy in place to effectively challenge this.

Blazers must be worn in the building.

Tie to be worn at all times.

The regulations on this page are intended as a guide to a uniform standard that supports the school's ethos. We cannot legislate for changes in fashion. We must rely on the common sense and support of parents and students in these matters. However, we reserve the right to have the final decision on the question of uniform

If a student attends school wearing incorrect uniform then this will be challenged.

We will provide spare shoes to students. We expect them to wear these if they do not have the correct shoes in school.
