Here at Craven Primary Academy we are proud to wear our school uniform and enjoy being ambassadors for our school while out in the community.
As part of preparing our Year 6 children for transition into secondary school, our Year 6 children are expected to wear a collared shirt and tie. Not only does it prepare them, it also shows them and the rest of the academy that they have a responsibility to be the role models and set good examples for the rest of our children.
Rest of school
Below you will see what the rest of our children wear. Children wear white collared polo shirts, although they can wear a white shirt if they wish, with black or grey trousers.
Cardigans and Jumpers worn should be the academy jumper with the Delta logo. Smart shoes and trainers should be black, and all children should have indoor sand shoes.
A more comprehensive list of what can and can not be worn can be found below in our uniform policy

The role of parents
We expect all parents to support the uniform policy; as it is parents’ responsibility to ensure children wear the correct uniform, and that it is clean and in good repair. To minimise the event of clothing being lost, all clothing must be named, so if misplaced, it can be returned. In the event of misplaced clothing, staff will label any academy uniform.
