Uniform, Equipment and Transport
Students are expected to arrive in full school uniform, on time and with all necessary equipment. Please refer to guidance in this section so that students can arrive ready and focused on their learning.
School uniform promotes a good working atmosphere, equality and community identity:
it encourages students to ‘dress for success’, to feel pride in the school and feel part of the school community
it reduces the scope for competitive dressing which can be a source of much unhappiness for students and promotes equality
it is practical and relatively inexpensive
Chilwell School is your place of work and you should look smart and business-like at all times. You are representing the school whenever you are out in the community, on public transport or walking along the street. The full correct uniform is available from Morleys in Chilwell or TGR Embroidery. Other shops may sell fashion variations which will not be acceptable if they are not closely modelled on the official uniform. The school’s decision is final in determining appropriateness.
If you are eligible for free school meals we will support you in purchasing the following items upon first entry; blazer, pie and PE Top. Please follow the link for further information and support in receiving these items.
