The Department for Education "strongly encourages schools to have a uniform as it can play a valuable role in contributing to the ethos of a school and setting an appropriate tone." At Crossdale, we believe that our school uniform helps children develop an understanding of community and consistency of expectations.
A downloadable and printable copy of the uniform order form is available at the link below. Please pop into the school office if you need a hard copy.
Our school uniform consists of the following: -
- burgundy sweatshirt or cardigan
- grey trousers and shorts
- grey skirt or pinafore
- white shirt or white/burgundy polo shirt
- summer dress (blue or red)
- black shoes (no trainers). Shoes should have no large and obvious branding on them.
NB. For health and safety reasons, open toed and sling back sandals are not suitable for school.
The sweatshirt, cardigans and polo-shirts (embroidered with the school logo) are available by ordering from the school office. However we do carry a small stock of uniform items. There is also an order form on the school website. It is advisable to label all items of clothing. Although not compulsory, caps are available at any time from the office. We also hold a stock of secondhand items (mainly sweatshirts) but sizes are subject to availability.
