Like all businesses around the world we are working our way through the Covid-19 outbreak. Our first priority is to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our staff, suppliers and customers. Accordingly, we have taken the following action:
In accordance with the latest government advice our warehouse, returns operations and school shops are temporarily closed. We have therefore suspended all shipments. If you have ordered or returned a garment then we apologise for the delay.
We are presuming that our customers will still want to purchase uniform ready for the Summer back to school season and are planning for that. Our team are working hard (from home) to ensure that we can deliver a great service to our customers once the position changes. They can be contacted on their mobiles or Zoom.
Where any staff member is asked to self-isolate or becomes sick with the virus, then we are paying full salary. We have suspended our usual time limits before moving to statutory sick pay. Our sincere hope is that we can support all of our staff through this difficult time and we have no plans to impose redundancies. We have a great team and are going to need them all both now and in the future.
We are working very closely with our suppliers. Where they are overseas and not subject to the same restrictions as the UK we are encouraging them to input new cleaning and monitoring regimes and to implement new patterns of working.
This is a difficult time for all of us and we will keep this page updated with any developments. In the meantime, we wish all of the Schoolblazer family, our customers, suppliers and team the very best of health.
