Mobile Phones

Procedure on Mobile Phones and earphones at School

As much as phones 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 into school, it is turned off and kept out of sight for the entire time students are on site.*


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


We would appreciate your help as parents in ensuring that students follow this rule to help maintain an orderly learning environment. In particular, please do not contact your child during the school day on their phone.  If you have an urgent message for your child, please contact the school on 01993 703955 and staff will ensure s/he receives it.  Thank you for your help.


*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 Permission can be withdrawn at any time.
