Our School Uniform is important to us. It is one way in which we identify ourselves as a school family and it promotes a strong, cohesive school identity which supports high standards and expectations in all areas of school life. Smartness and high standards of appearance are expected at all times.
The governing body supports the headteacher in implementing the school uniform policy, and liaises with the headteacher to ensure that the policy is implemented fairly and with sensitivity.
Our school uniform comprises:
- School sweatshirt - Navy.
- Skirt/Trousers - Grey, Navy or Black
- White Shirt/Blouse/Polo Shirt
- Black Shoes rather than trainers
- Tie (optional for Y6)
An alternative summer uniform of short grey trousers or Gingham Red or Blue dresses may be worn. Sun hats/baseball caps are strongly encouraged during the summer term.
The children are expected to have the following for P.E. activities:
- PLAIN T-shirt
- PLAIN Shorts, plimsolls and trainers (outdoor P.E.)
Children will wear their P.E. Kit into school on the days that it is being taught. On the days where children are attending an after-school sports club within school, then they must attend in school uniform and bring sports clothing with them to change into at the end of the day.
We try to teach P.E. lessons outside when appropriate throughout the year. A plain track-suit is helpful during the colder months.
- Football shirts or tracksuits with logos are to be avoided please.
- Earrings must be removed in order to take full part in P.E. activities. It is not acceptable nor safe to cover earrings with plasters. This is a requirement from the North Yorkshire Local Authority PE lesson risk assessment which states that 'all jewellery must be removed by the pupil'. If your child is going to have their ears pierced, we ask that this is done at the start of the summer holidays to avoid them missing P.E. lessons.
We ask all parents who send their children to Crakehall Church of England Primary School to support the school uniform policy. We believe that parents have a duty to send their children correctly dressed and ready for work. One of the responsibilities of parents is to ensure that their child has the correct uniform, and that it is clean and in good repair.
