From September 2021, students will not be allowed to have their phones out or switched on during the school day. We will expect mobile phones or other devices to be off and safely stored away in bags when students are on site. Students may be permitted to use their mobile phones in specific lessons, however if they are seen or heard without the permission of a member of staff they will be confiscated.
If there is an emergency and you need to reach your child, then you will be able to contact the school in the usual way. This change is in line with the government plans around mobile phones in schools, and we believe that this is a positive step for our school community, ensuring greater focus on learning, building positive relationships, and extra-curricular opportunities in school.
