Mobile Phones

Students can have their phones in their bags but not in their blazers or on their person. As soon as students enter the school grounds in the morning, their phones are not to be seen or heard until they leave the grounds at the end of their school day, which may be after after-school clubs or clinics.

Failure to comply, will result in the following:

  • First offence - the phone will be confiscated until the end of the day, and kept secure in the main office and collected by the student.

  • Second offence - the phone will be confiscated until the end of the day and CAN ONLY BE COLLECTED BY PARENT/CARER.

  • Subsequent offences - will be deemed as persistent defiant behaviour:  referral to the Support Centre and then exclusion.

  • Refusal to hand in their mobile phones when requested - will be dealt with as we do with any defiant behaviour:  referral to the Support Centre and then exclusion.

We feel this protocol will provide peace of mind that your child has their mobile phone with them to and from school. If you need to contact your child in school for an emergency then ringing through to the main reception means we can ask a member of staff to go and collect them to give a message or speak to you on the phone.
