Mobile Phones

  • Pupils are not allowed to keep phones in their bags, lockers or about their person or use their phones during the school day. Pupils who ignore this rule face serious consequences, including confiscation of the phone which may then have to be collected on their behalf by a responsible adult.

  • If a pupil brings a mobile phone to school, then they must leave it in the designated year box on arrival at school and pick it up from that box at the end of the school day.  The school reserves the right, at its sole discretion and at any time, to withdraw permission for a child to bring a phone to school.

  • Pupils bringing mobile phones to school do so at their own risk and the school will not take responsibility or accept any liability for their loss or damage - this includes theft or accidental damage. All phones MUST be visibly named either on the phone itself or on a cover which remains on the phone while it is on school premises. It is strongly advised that phone screens should be protected from scratching or cracking when stored in the boxes by having a cover or being placed in a bag/envelope or similar protective covering.
