Mobile phones must not be visible in school, and if seen they will be confiscated and we will then require a parent or carer to collect the phone from school.
Mobile phones will not be available for collection by a pupil.
The reasons for the ban on mobile phones in school are:
- to avoid pupils being distracted from their studies
- to remove barriers to teaching, learning and assessment ie to allow staff to deliver without interruptions
- to fully safeguard pupils and staff
- to remove the risk of damage to or theft of expensive mobile phones to reduce the potential risk of cyber bullying and misuse of social media.
