To ensure all students look smart and best represent The Croft Primary School, we have a number of rules when it comes to school uniforms.

The Croft school uniform consists of two seasonal sets:

Winter School Uniform

September to March

Winter School Uniform

  • Black trousers or black skirt
  • Green pinafore dress
  • Green school crested V neck jumper, crew neck jumper, cardigan or zipped fleece (from Earth Uniform)
  • White formal shirt or white polo t-shirt (crested version from Earth Uniform)
  • Green & Silver tie (Optional in years 3-5 but compulsory in Y6)
  • Black or green tights
  • Black, White, or Green socks
  • Black shoes
  • Leather/Patent or shoes or plain black boots (no sparkles).

Year 6 students are required to wear a Formal shirt and tie as part of their Winter uniform.

Summer School Uniform

April to July

  • Green gingham checked dresses
  • White polo shirt (crested version available from Earth Uniform)
  • Black tailored shorts or trousers
  • Black skirt
  • White, Black, or green socks
  • A formal sandal may be worn (no flip flops or sliders)
  • Black leather shoes
  • Appropriate sunhat

PE Kits

PE kits should be worn into school on the day that your child's class have PE lessons, the specified day will be communicated out to you.

The PE kit consists of:

  • A white crested round neck t-shirt
  • Green unisex shorts or plain black shorts
  • Green crested joggers or black sports legging/black joggers.
  • Green crested PE Hoodie * this is an optional item
  • Daps or trainers.

A lost property box will be available in the school entrance office should any missing uniform items be recovered.

Additional Notes

Jewellery can be worn for religious beliefs but must be kept to a minimum. Earrings should be small stud earrings. Hoop earrings are not allowed as they are a risk during PE lessons and at playtime. Analogue watches can be worn but no smart watches please

Nail varnish and makeup are not permitted in school, unless with the express permission of the principal.

If, for cultural reasons, parents wish their child to wear a particular type of clothing during the school day, this is absolutely fine. Examples include a turban, headscarf, or a PE kit that includes longer-length trousers.

Second-hand uniform

Purchasing second-hand school uniforms is budget-friendly and eco-conscious. Here are some suggestions:

  • School Office / PTA: Check with the school office to find out how to purchase pre-loved uniform.
  • Charity Shops: Visit local charity shops that may carry school uniforms.
  • Online Marketplaces: Use sites like eBay, Facebook Marketplace, and dedicated uniform exchange platforms.
  • Community Groups: Join local social media groups where parents sell or trade uniforms.

These suggestions can help save money and support sustainability.
