Uniform contract provisions

4 September 2012

The BBC has reported that an Oxfordshire school uniform manufacturer has failed to meet its orders in time, leaving a large number of pupils without uniform for the start of the school year. The BBC understands that this is the second time the manufacturer (which supplies around 318 schools with their uniforms) has failed to meet the deadline for delivering products.

As many schools contract directly with parents for the supply of uniforms, this can have grave implications for the relationship between the schools and parents.

It therefore vitally important to check the terms of any supply contracts to ensure that there is sufficient contractual cover for late delivery. This will reduce the likelihood of default or delay in the first place, and will also give the school comfort that should such an issue occur, there are adequate measures in place to deal with it.
