At Richard Crosse we impress upon our children the value of looking neat and smart at school.  Our expectations are that all children will wear clothing that is in keeping with a purposeful learning ethos.  Our expectations are based on the belief that a school uniform:

  • promotes a sense of pride in our school
  • engenders a feeling of belonging
  • is practical and distinctive
  • identifies the children with the school
  • is not distracting in class
  • makes children feel equal to one another in terms of appearance
  • is affordable
  • is flexible and offers choice

The uniform is listed below.  While the blazer (KS2 only) and jumper are branded, if need be these can be purchased without branding.  All other items of uniform can be purchased at a variety of supermarkets, online shops or high street stores.

We appreciate that the cost of school uniform can sometimes be high, and so the school will hold second hand uniform sales throughout the year, particularly in the Summer Term.  We also ask departing students if they have any good quality uniform which can be donated back to the school. 

If you are having difficulty with any aspect of the school uniform, please contact the school to discuss this.

We follow the DfE guidance on uniforms.

There are two uniform suppliers for the branded items:

White Lodge, based in Lichfield www.whitelodgegroup.co.uk White Lodge will make a donation to the school PTA for any uniform ordered through them.

Global Trading, based in Walton on Trent. www.wbglobaltrading.co.uk

 

Please note that the children come to school in PE kit 2 days each week, therefore you will only need to buy enough school uniform for 3 school days.

JEWELLERY

The only jewellery that children are permitted to wear are watches, (from year 2 onwards), and safety studs for children with pierced ears.  For safety reasons, earrings must be removed for PE and swimming, therefore we would advise ear piercing to be done at the start of the summer holiday.  Staff are not allowed to remove earrings from pupils.

 

The wearing of make-up and unconventional hairstyles is discouraged and children are asked to wear black or red hair bobbles.  Children with long hair must wear their hair tied back in a ponytail, plait or pigtails.  This is for health and safety reasons and to prevent the spread of head lice.  No headbands or other hair decorations should be worn.
