Mobile Phones

If at all possible we would prefer not to have mobile phones in school; however we understand that some parents/carers may wish their child to have a phone in case of an emergency on the way to or from school.

If you do decide to let your child bring a phone to school, you must abide by the following guidelines:

  • Mobile phones must be switched off at all times when students are in the school buildings or the school grounds and should be kept in a school bag;
  • Mobile phones should be passcode protected;
  • Mobile phones must not be used to take photographs or video in the school or on a school bus;
  • Mobile phones are not allowed in the exam room for examinations

Any student found to be using a mobile phone will have it confiscated for the duration of that school day. If it is being confiscated for the first or second time in a half term, the phone can be retrieved at 2.55pm on the same day from the Pastoral Office.  If a student has a mobile phone confiscated for a third or more times, parents/carers will have to come to the school to collect the phone.

If a student needs to phone home during the course of the day, they should contact the school office or a member of the pastoral team.

Please note that the school does not accept responsibility for the loss, damage or theft of mobile phones.
