Attending registration is a legal requirement and it is parents' responsibility to ensure students arrive promptly at their tutor room. During registration important notices and information are often given out to the tutor group.
Each year group has a weekly assembly during registration time in the School theatre. Assemblies are a time for us to reflect on issues which concern the school, celebrate our achievements and consider how we might improve.
Please see the specific year group page in the pastoral support section for full details of registration activities and assembly schedules.
Lessons are the most important time of the school day. It is vital for students' future that they receive the best education possible. Students are expected to arrive promptly to each lesson, fully equipped and ready to engage with learning.
Movement Around School
We expect students to behave sensibly when moving along corridors and around school. At Chilwell school, students walk calmly and follow the one-way system.
Break and Lunchtime
Both Dining Rooms are open at break and lunchtime to serve food and drinks, please click Catering for more details.
At both break and lunch time, pupils are encouraged to enjoy our outside spaces. In summer the school field is opened for pupils to use at lunchtime.
Pupils are not allowed off-site at either break or lunchtime without prior written permission.
In the event of poor weather, designated year areas are opened and supervised at lunchtime.
