About

Sustainable School Shop’s Second Hand Uniform Trading is used by many schools and is more than just a listing service. This system provides guidance on which are the correct items to buy and whom to buy them from, as well as, which sellers have most of the required items.

Information from the school’s uniform lists is entered into the system, to make the creation of wanted and for sale advertisements easy (e.g. parents tick the boxes). This removes keying errors and standardises the advertisements. Buyers and sellers are then matched and sent email notifications.

The service enhances the sense of school community as the transaction is parent to parent, each helping the other in a non-competitive environment and both having ownership over the transaction.

Telephone and email helplines are provided and parents can contact the Sustainable School Shop should they have a question or be experiencing a problem.

The screenshots below show the ‘Tick the box of the items I require’ page (i.e. wanted ads) and the Advanced Search Summary, displays all the exact and close matches for the required items. These results can be filtered to ‘Who has the most number of items I need’ or ‘Who has the cheapest items’.

There is also a second hand uniform stocktake report that is regularly sent to registered families, summarising all the available second-hand uniforms items that are for sale on the website (see Screen Shot 4).

The Sustainable School Shop service is free for families at the school to use. Note Genazzano will be listed in the seller details for any second hand items being sold by the College.
