Mobile Phones


Mobile Phone Policy

Mobile phones, iPods and headphones are not allowed to be used or seen in the school building or on site.

  • On entry to the school building, mobile phone, iPods or headphones need to be switched off and put in a school bag.
  • Mobiles, iPods and headphones should not be visible on a student. They are to remain in bags.
  • Mobiles will not be allowed to be used in lessons for research, as a calculator or for telling the time. Students are not allowed to use mobiles as calculators in examinations and they need to have their own scientific calculator for this purpose.

Mobiles, iPods and headphones are not allowed to be switched on/used until students have left the school site.

We appreciate that you may require your child to have a mobile phone but it must be switched off and remain in their bags. In an emergency, please contact the Main Office and we will send a message to your child. The office staff are unable to deliver items to your child e.g. lunches/keys/bank cards. If your child forgets their lunch/money, they can borrow it from the main office.

If a mobile, iPod or headphones are seen in the building or outside during school time they will be confiscated.

Students will be able to collect the item at the end of the school day from the Main Office. Parents /carers will be informed.  Sanctions for persistent offenders will be escalated and parents/carers may be required to come and collect the item from the Main Office before 4.30pm (Monday-Thursday) and 4pm (Friday). We appreciate that this is inconvenient and therefore require your support in ensuring that your child knows and understands the rules.
