Mobile phones and devices are banned in school. Students are very aware of the potential distractions caused to learning and the negative impact on face-to-face relationships that mobile devices can pose to young people.
We understand that many parents support their child having a phone with them for their journey to and from school. Therefore, we will be allowing phones in school, but they must be switched off from the moment they arrive on school site and must be kept in their school bag. Mobile phones stored in pockets will not be allowed, it is essential that all students have a robust school bag every day for their school equipment and their phone should they choose to bring it to school. Students who are diabetic and rely on their phones to monitor their sugar levels, will have individual plans for mobile phone use in school.
We operate a ‘don’t see it, don’t hear it, don’t lose it’ approach to mobile phones and devices. Any breach of the mobile phone rules will result in a consequence. If a member of staff sees a mobile phone, they will confiscate the phone. If the student complies with the confiscation, the phone can then be collected at the end of the school day. The same applies to ear-pods or a Smart-Watch which is being used for anything other than telling the time. If a student does not initially comply with the confiscation, the phone will need to be collected at the end of the school day by a parent/carer. Each confiscation will be logged and repeat offenders will receive an appropriate sanction in line with our school behaviour policy. Similarly, if a student refuses to hand over a mobile phone, the relevant sanction will be applied.
