Mobile Phones and Other Electronic Devices
We have reviewed our policy on mobile phones. We have done this because we think that students do not need the phones in school time. Their use is often distracting and disturbing, particularly in lesson time, where students are tempted to look at messages rather than concentrating. New guidelines are in place from September 1st, requiring schools to review their procedures for keeping children safe on line. A lack of phones during school time will help us to ensure that students can enjoy their education without worrying that their privacy could be invaded by other people’s phones. Phones are useful on the way to and from school. In school, they will need to be turned off and out of sight. This includes the time between lessons and at Break and Lunchtimes.
