Please see our update for 22 May 2020: Friday 22nd May

School Uniform

If any family is currently worried needing to get  Free School Meal support or worried about being able to afford uniform in the future, please see  the East Lothian Council clothing grant application: https://www.eastlothian.gov.uk/info/210557/schools_nurseries_and_learning/11899/free_school_meals_and_clothing_grants/4

When we return to school, we know many students will have grown out of their uniform – please do not throw it away but keep it and donate to our uniform bank on our return to school.

We keep a supply of school uniform at DGS to support students who are struggling to get hold of uniform.

Update from our School Uniform Supplier

We now have our sales team working from home and they’re available via email to deal with any current or new order enquiries you may have. We also have a small production team back in the factory, ordering stock for the summer ahead and picking and embroidering stock to fulfil orders. Due to restrictions we are unable to get our full workforce back in, but we are following government advice closely and hope to welcome all staff back in the coming weeks. With this reduced team of staff we currently have back, we will begin shipping orders from the 1 June. If your order is urgently needed for a date before the 1st of June, please get in touch with us via email – info@border-embroideries.co.uk – and we can help make other arrangements.
