Since the launch of the new uniform we have been concerned about a number of faults appearing with the cording on the blazers and over the last few weeks we have been investigating the situation to understand the reason behind this. We have now pinpointed the cause of the fault to a faulty batch of cord which when inserted is fraying, meaning the cord is falling away from the jacket.
Unfortunately we have no way of knowing which blazers have been made with this faulty cord and whilst we have only had a lesser percentage returned we are left with no option but to remake the whole production.
Please accept our humble apologies for this mistake, but may we assure you that we take the situation very seriously and are very disappointed to have troubled Abbeyfield School and its parents with this problem, especially so soon after the huge delight in unveiling the new uniform.
We expect the new delivery of blazers to be with us at the end of the year and will be reissuing blazers to every pupil at the start of the Spring Tern in January.
May I again take this opportunity to apologise to the school and its parents for this situation which we are rectifying as swiftly as possible.
