Why is the SA important to my School?

The Schoolwear Association was formed in 2006 to promote the benefits of school specific uniform and to establish strong standards in the supply chain of garments to parents and schools.

It can help schools on a number of issues and importantly it's members sign up to a code of conduct and commit to respect the wishes of the schools that they serve.

Always check if your supplier is a member of the SA.

Template School Uniform Supply Agreement – Free to download

The Department for Education guidance on school uniforms states that where schools specify school branded items as part of their uniform policy, the governing board should ensure there is a written contract in place for these items. To support this guidance, we have produced a Template School Uniform Supply Agreement that is free to download for schools to use. This agreement has been created specifically with school uniform provision in mind from our unique knowledge of this process.

 

The Template School Uniform Supply Agreement has been designed for use in conjunction to a wider uniform procurement process where schools wish to have a sole supplier but could equally be adapted where multiple uniform providers are appointed by a school. The fields that require personalisation are all highlighted in yellow throughout the document and there are additional footnotes to assist when completing.
