School Uniform Policy

We expect all children at Hayfield Cross to wear school uniform.  This gives the children a sense of belonging and pride in their school.  Our uniform, like our school, is unique and our children are proud to represent their school wherever they go. 

Our school uniform is supplied by Your School Uniform and can all be purchased online.   Parents are welcome to choose to purchase non-branded uniform (without the school logo) from other outlets which may be more cost effective but must ensure they are in the designated school colours.  Our parents association (TOPs) also hold a selection of pre-loved uniform available.
