Uniform

uniformCrwys Primary School uniform consists of white polo shirts, red sweatshirts and grey trousers/skirts. All of these items are available from Manhattan Marketing. Items can be purchased over the telephone 01554 749390 or online http://manhattan-online.co.uk/collections/crwys-primary , along with reading folders, jackets, hats and other accessories. All items bear the school logo.

Although school uniform is not compulsory, parents are strongly encouraged to dress their children in it. The benefits of wearing uniform have been clearly identified in terms of better discipline and pride taken in the school and a greater sense of identity and community within the school.

There is also less competition between children in terms of what they wear to school, and there are no disagreements between parents and children about what a child should wear to school.

All children are expected to wear school uniform when representing the school in various competitions, concerts and open days.

Footwear

We would ask that you exercise restraint in the type of footwear your child wears. High-heeled shoes and /or Crocs, flip flops etc. can be a safety hazard and, therefore, are not allowed. Sensible shoes are the preferred option to be worn.

Jewellery

If earrings must be worn to school, they must be restricted to small ‘stud’ or ‘sleeper’ type. These should be removed before P.E. and Games as there have been some nasty accidents documented where children have suffered torn ear lobes. All other jewellery is discouraged in the interests of safety and to avoid problems if an item is lost.

Marking Garments

Occasionally, children lose or misplace articles of clothing. Please do help us by marking all garments, P.E. kits, shoes etc with your child’s name.

Games/PE Kit

On PE days please ensure your child brings PE kit to school i.e. T-shirt, shorts and appropriate footwear. They will change back into their school uniform after the lesson. It is very important that the children bring kit on the correct day. They are not permitted to take part in PE lessons without appropriate kit.
