Whilst we appreciate that mobile phones have become an essential part of everyday life, we do not expect pupils to have them out during lesson time or lesson change-over time, for example between lesson 1 and 2 and lesson 4 and 5. It is expected that as soon as the bell rings pupils will put their mobile phones away.
The following rules apply during lesson time and change over:
Phones are not to be visible. Must be switched off in bags during lesson time and lesson switch over. Mobile phones should not be visible, so being kept in the top pocket is unacceptable.
No phones or headphones on corridors at any time.
Phones are allowed to be on during social time – before school, break, lunch, after school but only in social spaces – hall, dining rooms, outside.
Phones that are confiscated will be collected by parents from the main office at the end of the day. This is non- negotiable!
