Mobile Phones

The school does not encourage children to bring mobile phones or devices into school and asks parents to ensure that pupils only do so when really necessary. Parents and pupils need to be aware of and understand the following conditions:

  • The school does not accept responsibility for any loss or damage to mobile phones or devices whilst they are on the school premises or on the way to and from school.
  • Mobile phones and devices are to be switched off when entering the school premises
  • Mobile phones are to be handed in to Form Tutors at the beginning of the day. These will be put in a storage box and sent to the main office to be kept until the end of the day.
  • If a student arrives late their mobile phone should be handed straight into the office and it will be put in their class storage box.
  • Mobile phones or devices can only be used during school hours with the express permission of a member of the teaching staff and only for the purpose for which permission has been given.
  • Any breach of these conditions will result in the confiscation of the mobile phone/device until the end of the school day and parents will be notified and asked to collect the device at their convenience.
