Mobile Phone Policy
Students do NOT need to bring mobile phones to school with them, though we know that many parents like them to have phones for safety when travelling to and from school. Once in school they must be turned off and safely stored in bags. If parents need to get touch with their child, please telephone main reception who will ensure a message is relayed. Likewise our students can request a call is made to parents from Reception or their Year Team office if required.
If mobile phones are seen during the school day our policy for staff is:
- Confiscate the item if seen out in school
- Log a 30 minute detention on Edulink – ‘Respect – mobile phone use’
- Hand the phone the appropriate Pastoral Manager
- The Pastoral Manager will return the phone at the end of the detention
Repeat offenders will need parents to collect from the year team at a meeting to discuss ongoing concerns.
