School Uniform

The uniform code is voluntary but we strongly encourage the wearing of the Crabtree School uniform and the vast majority of parents choose to follow it.  Our aim is for the children to take pride in their appearance as well as being comfortable. Polo shirts, sweatshirts, cardigans and PE shirts embroidered with the school logo are on sale from the Parents’ Association.  The PA also sells Crabtree fleeces for outdoor wear and PE. To order uniform, please complete a form and hand in at the School Office with your payment; please allow up to 4 weeks for delivery, purchases will be sent home with your child on Friday.

Parents wishing to buy second hand uniform can attend the uniform shop (in the 'mobile' classroom outside Year 3). In addition to logoed uniform, the shop also sells trousers, shorts, dresses and trainers. A small amount of new uniform is also available to buy. The uniform shop is open 3 Fridays per half term between 8.50am and 9.30am, the open dates can be found in the newsletter, outside the uniform shop and here
