How to Place Your Order:

Wherever possible, please place your order online.  We can also accept orders by telephone but online orders are given priority, particularly during our busy back-to-school period of July to September.

CHECKOUT

When placing an order online, please select your preferred delivery option.

Your options are:
Home Delivery or School Delivery.

School deliveries are free and usually take place once a week.  Select the name of your school at checkout.  It is very important you give your child’s name and class in the Delivery Instructions box at checkout.  If the order is for a new starter who has not yet started, it is helpful to the school if you mention this.

The cost of home delivery is currently £3.95 irrespective of value or size of package.  For small value orders, you may wish to combine with other parents at the school.  We are quite happy to ship orders together.

PAYMENT
ORDER CONFIRMATION
DELIVERY TIMING & ARRANGEMENTS
RETURNS & EXCHANGES
  • When placing an order online, please select your preferred delivery option.

Your Options are:
Click & Collect, School Delivery or Home Delivery. 

Click & Collect is from our store in Lightwater and is free of charge.  School deliveries are also free and usually take place once a week.  Home delivery costs £3.95

If requesting a school delivery, it is important you give your child’s name and class at checkout.  If this is a new starter who has not yet started, please also mention this.

Our online payment provider is Opayo (formerly SagePay).  This is a secure operation and the company accepts a range of debit and credit cards, including American Express.  Your card details are not held by Kids-Biz. For payments made at our store or over the telephone, a manual card machine is used. We also accept cash payments at the store.

Once you have placed your online order you will receive 2 emails; one from Opayo to confirm a payment has been made and an order confirmation from Kids-Biz (webshop@kidsbiz.co.uk). If you do not receive either email, please double check the email address which you gave us and look in your Spam folder. No email from Opayo means that your payment did not go through or there was an error in transmission. No email from Kids-Biz likely means that we have not received notification of your order. In either case, it is important you let us know and we can rectify this.

Please check your order confirmation carefully as these are the products you will receive.  If this is not what you intended to order, again, do let us know immediately.

Most items are held in stock, including specials and embroidered garments for your school.  Although it is unusual, we can occasionally go out of stock and you will be notified if we are unable to deliver to our usual schedule. 
Once your order has been processed, you will receive notification by email that your goods have been packed.

 

1. Click & Collect at Lightwater – FREE (usually 2/3 days)
Once your order has been packed, it is ready for collection. You will be given a link with details of our location and current opening times which vary according to the time of the year.  For orders with multiple items, it is possible that your order may not be complete so you can choose to collect now or wait until later.

Our Lightwater page is where you will find all the latest information about timings and deliveries. 

 

2. School Deliveries – FREE (usually up to 7 days)
Your school is happy to accept your delivery at school. Orders are normally batched together and delivered once a week into the School Office.  Deliveries are usually carried out personally by Kids-Biz staff.  Each order will be individually packaged with your child’s name and class so please ensure you give this information at checkout.

During Half Term and school holidays, orders will be held back and delivered when school reopens.  Arrangements for collecting your order at school varies, so please check with the School Office if unsure.

 

3. Home Delivery - £3.95

Local deliveries are usually delivered by Kids-Biz staff and can be up to 7 days from placing your order.  If you need an urgent delivery, do let us know and we will do our utmost to accommodate you.

 

BACK TO SCHOOL – this extremely busy period is from mid July to mid September.  Delivery times will be extended so please allow for this when placing your order.

Please return any unwanted items to school, to our store in Lightwater or post back to us at Kids-Biz Ltd, Returns, Unit 1a Broadway Green Farm, Broadway Road, Lightwater, GU18 5SU.  If returning to school, please address the package to Kids-Biz Returns and enclose details of your order. If you require an exchange, please email first with details of your requirements and we will aim to deliver your replacement and collect the return at the same time (at no charge to you).  You may also visit us at Lightwater if you require an urgent exchange but please check the website for visiting information as these change regularly and you may also prefer to check that the replacement item is in stock.  We now have a Returns Box outside our unit so even if we are closed, you can still leave your package.

Sizing/Fitting:

Our website provides sizing information wherever possible but you are welcome to call us for extra guidance.

We have a special link to help with measurements and sizing HERE:

New Starters:

Where possible, Kids-Biz will produce special paperwork with guidance and order dates.  This is usually distributed by your school with your welcome pack and a copy will also be published on the school’s page of our website.

Other Kids-Biz Items:

Apart from your recommended school specials, we have a wide range of general uniform, sportswear and accessories which you are welcome to purchase online.  Your school page shows which of our items are suitable for use at school and which compliment your uniform. These can also be included in any school deliveries, where applicable.
