Uniforms - Crosby Housing Association charity shop



Good morning 


I am the temporary shop manager for  Crosby Housing Association charity shop in Waterloo. Last year the shop did a school uniform scheme, which provided school uniforms for free, to parents of children who needed them. As this was so successful last year, we have decided to do it again this year, but we need help.


Please find the link to our Facebook post about the scheme below


Donations of school uniform of any size, age or colour would be appreciated. The uniforms will be available in our shop, throughout August to anyone who needs them. Also we are hoping to shut the shop for the afternoon on the 14th of August, so we can hang out all the uniforms, and allow people to come in and find what they need. We will be providing time slots to allow for social distancing measures, to eliminate people having to wait or queue, and so our volunteers can provide assistance.


Thank you for your support. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me on 0151 665 0230


Kind regards


Olivia Watts

Parents and carers can give their views of our school at any time of the school year and at the time of a school inspection using an online questionnaire called Parent View.


When our school is notified of its next Ofsted inspection, parents will be invited to give their views about the school, using the Parent View online facility, as this has replaced Ofsted’s paper questionnaire. Please make sure we have your most up to date contact details.


Please register with an email address and a password at Once your login has been activated, it only takes a few minutes to complete answers to 12 short questions about aspects such as bullying, the quality of teaching, level of homework, etc.


Your views are important in helping inspectors make a decision about our school, and to help us know what is going well and what could be improved.


If you do not have a computer or an email address or if you would like help to use Parent View, please come into school and ask at reception.
