The Cypress Primary uniform is expected to be worn by all pupils from Nursery to Year 6. All children should be encouraged to wear it with pride. This allows our pupils to be distinctive, thereby removing competitiveness which can surround young peoples' clothes. As well as being practical, a school uniform raises expectations and gives a sense of pride and commitment to the values of Cypress Infant and Junior Schools. We ask your co-operation to ensure that children dress neatly and tidily. The uniform is reasonably priced so that items that wear out can be replaced.
The complete uniform is available from Hewitts of Church Street, Croydon, but most items are obtainable from chain stores such as Marks and Spencer and BHS.
