Croft School

School Uniform

We ask all parents to dress their children in our school uniform, which has been chosen to be comfortable, smart and easy for young children to dress themselves in.  Uniform also encourages loyalty to and a pride in the school.

The uniform is as follows:

  • Grey skirt, pinafore dress or school trousers
  • Blue school sweatshirt or cardigan
  • Blue polo shirt 
  • White socks or plain grey tights for girls, grey socks for boys
  • Enclosed flat, black school shoes, not trainers, boots or sandals

In the summer, girls may wear blue checked dresses and boys and girls may wear grey shorts. Optional items include baseball cap, zipped fleece, weatherproof jacket / fleece (reversible).

All items are available from Batemans in Stroud.  Second hand uniform sales are also held regularly by The Friends of The Croft School.

Please note: Children can come in wearing non-uniform on their birthday.  Please do not bring in cakes/sweets or biscuits, homemade or otherwise, as we have a number of children with allergies.  If your child's birthday is on a weekend they can choose to come in non-uniform on the Friday or Monday either side of their birthday.

Spare clothes

 If you think it might be necessary, please send your child to school with a spare pair of underwear and trousers/skirt.  In addition, a change of clothes, particularly socks, can be useful if the weather is very wet.

Jewellery is not permitted in school, apart from watches and stud earrings.

We do not allow children to have mobile phones in school, unless they are in Year 5 or Year 6 and walk home alone.  In this case, phones must be switched off as soon as the children arrive on site and handed in to their teacher first thing.  They can then be collected at 3.15pm.

PE kit

We ask that children wear the following for PE lessons:

  • Plain navy blue shorts, joggers or leggings (no gymnastic-style "knicker" shorts)
  • White crew-neck t-shirt (logo or plain)
  • School sweatshirt or cardigan (logo or plain royal blue)
  • Black plimsolls (elasticated or velcro fastenings) for EYFS, Year 1 and Year 2 (plain trainers can be worn for outdoor games in the summer)
  • Plain coloured  trainers for Key Stage 2
  • White or grey socks
  • School fleece (optional additional layer for outdoor PE)

On PE days, children come to school dressed in their PE kit.

Earrings should not be worn on PE days; if ears are newly pierced, studs must be covered with micropore for PE lessons.

Book bags

We like each child to have a school book bag, which will keep reading books in good condition as they come and go from school. They are also useful to carry school letters etc.

Please note: We ask that all of your child's clothes are named, preferably with a name labels. This makes it easy for your child to find their belongings and ensure that we can return to you any items which are found.  It is also helpful to name lunchboxes and water bottles are children quite often have the same ones!
