The children at St Simon's come to school clean and neatly dressed.
In the interests of health and safety long hair must be tied back and no jewellery or nail varnish may be worn.
If your child is to have pierced ears, please arrange this for the long holiday so that they can be removed for school; nasty accidents can occur during P.E. lessons or in the playground if earrings are left in.
All children are expected to wear the following simple uniform:
Navy blue skirt or trousers
White blouse or shirt
Red v-necked sweatshirt or cardigan with the school logo
Girls : Red, navy or white tights or white socks
Boys : Black socks
Navy blue short-sleeved polo shirt
Navy blue shorts or trousers
Red and white checked dress
V-necked sweatshirts and cardigans, navy blue polo shirts, navy blue outdoor fleeces and waterproof coats with the embroidered school logo are available to buy from Davensport, 98 Bramhall Lane, Davenport (Phone 0161 483 3005).
We also have an online shop with a company called Stitch Design. Both suppliers are now our official suppliers, using our copyrighted logo. To access the online shop, go to the provider’s website - www.stitchdesign.co.uk - sign in at the School Parents page, using the school’s postcode SK7 4LH. Delivery is free directly to the school for us to distribute to you, however, only on specific dates throughout the year. Postage costs will apply if you need an urgent delivery
Ties are available to buy from School.
Please make sure that your child has a coat with them, even if the weather looks promising or you travel to school by car. The children will be playing outside and they will soon feel cold or damp.
It is important to mark every item of uniform clearly with your child's name.
P.E. and Games
All children are expected to participate in P.E. and swimming unless they have a doctor's note on or before the day, which may excuse them.
A suitable change of clothing is essential for all P.E. and Games lessons for reasons of health and safety.
The children will need a P.E. kit for gym and dance work indoors and for games outside.
Navy blue shorts.
Pale blue polo shirt.
Outdoors (Should be brought in on Tuesdays)
Navy blue shorts
Pale blue polo shirt
Trainers (Velcro fastening , not lace ups, for the Infant children please!)
From Nov : Dark coloured jogging/track bottoms
Any coloured warm hoodie/fleece.
Children will need a P.E. bag with their name clearly marked on it.
All kit should be marked with your child's name.
Lightweight waterproof jackets are provided by school. We do outdoor games unless the weather is really too bad!
Whichever class is having Tuesday swimming lessons will not need to bring outdoor kit, unless in the after school running club.
It is recommended that children leave their indoor P.E. kit in school until each holiday when it will be sent home for washing - we will send it home earlier if necessary!
