For families who are thinking about ordering uniform for when school reopens, today, i have had a lengthy call with Tony from Tots to Teams.
We do not know when school will re-open, so anything prior to July is a bonus. Therefore, if we think further ahead and hope September is achievable, then some families will be looking to order uniform in July. Tots to Teams have furloughed most of their staff but they are still operational. The Manager, Tony, is working in the factory Monday to Friday, 9.00 – 12.00 p.m. The site are still taking orders and Tony is actually going out of his way to deliver them to homes. After my discussion with him today, i thought it prudent to share some information if you are looking to place orders.
Tots to Teams are still in operation and still taking orders.
Some of the suppliers Tots to Teams use have already closed or gone into administration, therefore they cannot supply Tots to Teams.
Tots to Teams have other suppliers they can use.
When placing orders they will be delivered to you when your ENTIRE order arrives in the store, they will not deliver partial orders as this means Tony is making several trips.
If your item is in stock and you pay for it, but the supplier closes, Tots to Teams will refund your money.
Finally, the delivery times are significantly affected, therefore please be mindful that ordering now could take 4 – 6 weeks. So, ordering in June or July will mean it is highly probable you will NOT have your uniform for September.
We were one of the only schools to have already ordered the Leavers Hoodies for our Year 6 children, other schools are placing these orders now, so they are Tots to Teams priority orders.
I hope this helps, any questions please give me a ring
