School uniform identifies students with Millais School and should be worn with pride and a sense of responsibility.
The school has a clear and firm policy on uniform and we ask parents to study it carefully and give it their full support. This avoids us having to spend valuable time reminding pupils about details or parents being involved in unnecessary expense by buying items of uniform which are unacceptable.
All items of uniform must be fully named.
Please see our uniform page on our Parent Hub.
Should you wish to speak to a member of staff about a concern of a serious or sensitive nature, please contact the Headteacher's PA, on their direct line, 01403 282013.

The Governing Body of Millais School is made up of volunteers from various parts of the community served by the school – parents, school staff, local authority appointed and individuals from the broader Horsham community.
We come from many backgrounds and have a wide range of skills and experiences, which bring an independent view to issues of strategy, performance, the management of resources and setting the standards and expectations of the school.
Above all else, we are committed to ensuring that all students are given every opportunity to fulfil their potential and to the ongoing success and further improvement of the school.

Millais School : Providing Remote Education Information to Parents and Carers
A couple of important defintions:
Remote Learning Tasks = Covid Absence
Home Learning Tasks = HW Tasks set via TEAMs
If you are at home due to a positive Covid result we hope that this clarifies what you need to do in relation to completing work.
- You are only expected to complete work if you feel well enough to do so - we are aware that everyone's experience of Covid is going to be very different. Do not worry if you do not feel well enough to do anything, concentrate on getting well so that you can come back to school with lots of energy, your teachers will support you when you're ready.
- If you do feel well enough to complete work we suggest you look at your timetable and work one day behind it - for example, if you would like to do some work on a Wednesday, look at your timetable for Tuesday... this means that your teachers will have added the work as well as any updates that happened in the classroom in school. Then use your timetable to look at the range of subjects you have.
- Please find below the Teams Curriculum Area Guide to Remote Learning, each Curriculum Area has identified where work will be set, what to do if you have completed it and if you would like extra support. Use this guide to find the subject you are looking for and a brief signpost to the work.
As of Friday 12th February the DfE has asked us to provide parents with the following document:
Whilst students are working remotely, please find below a summary of topics for each subject. We have divided the information into Key Stage 3 and 4 for your convenience.
Some of our students are entitled to apply for free data from their mobile provider, please read this letter to find out more:
Student guide to installing the Microsoft Office Package remotely:
Here at Millais we use two learning platforms. We are using Microsoft Teams to provide our parallel online curriculum and Frog works alongside this to support student engagement and deliver our depth and extension material.
Microsoft Office365 & Teams
All students are provided with an Office 365 account and they have a single user-id and password to access all aspects of our remote provision.
Accessing their Office 365 accounts from home is a simple process of using the web browser and searching Office 365 Login. When you are prompted, enter your school email (ending in @millais.org.uk) as the username and the password from your school account.
