Mobile Phones

Procedure on Mobile Phones, Smart Watches and earphones at School

As much as phones and smart watches are a big part of our day-to-day lives, they can cause a significant disruption to learning in school.  For that reason we insist that if a student chooses to bring a phone and/or smart watch into school, it is turned off and kept out of sight for the entire time students are on site.*


Unfortunately, the school takes no responsibility for the loss or theft of any personal belongings brought into school by either students or staff.  The school discourages students from bringing personal belongings, especially expensive items, into school


Mobile phones, smart watches and/or earphones will be confiscated until the end of the day if they are seen or heard in school. 


*On occasions staff may allow students to use their mobile phones in lessons for school work, e.g. to access an online dictionary but only if the teacher permits it and monitors it. Permission can be withdrawn at any time.
