School uniform suppliers

With resources stretched to the limit, your office staff have enough to do without having to micro-manage suppliers and take time out from their normal duties to source special one-off items.

Recognition Express can take away all the hassle associated with school uniform and branded product buying, even taking direct payments from parents online leaving you free to focus on more important things. Because we have access to hundreds of top quality suppliers we can source everything from run of the mill standard uniform items to very specialist items, as Five Acre Wood in Maidstone recently experienced.

The district special school for children and young people with profound, severe and complex learning difficulties, including Autistic Spectrum Disorder is a customer of Recognition Express Kent. Five Acres asked director Steve Randerson to help parents with a very specific challenge. The child has a high level of autism and can’t cope with the feel of polyester against his skin and wearing school uniform in this fabric made him very agitated. So, Steve used his extensive contacts and found alternative garments or him manufactured in softer material. The end result? One happy child, relieved parents and another success for a school that puts its pupils first.

At the beginning of the relationship, Steve spent time at the school to find out exactly what they needed – and then set about building a bespoke ordering platform tailored specifically to Five Acres. For example, he sourced specially adapted clothing with zips instead of being pull- on to facilitate medical needs, and items with extra durability. Any new items of uniform or branded items can be easily added. Parents order and pay direct from the customised website provided by Recognition Express, and Steve delivers the orders to the school weekly.

In addition to the school uniform website, Recognition Express provides Five Acres with a one stop shop service for all its branded and personalised items, including signage, ID cards and lanyards, trophies, pop up banners and pens.
