Mobile phone policy

The priority at this school is to provide a safe and peaceful learning environment where students can focus on learning.

Our Phone GO/NO system was introduced to prevent mobile phones from distracting from learning. This simple system follows 3 steps:

1. Teachers display Phone GO or NO signage at the start of each lesson.

2. If a teacher sees a student with their phone during a Phone NO lesson, they are given one warning.

3. If the teacher sees the phone again the student is expected to put it in the safe. If they don't put it in the phone safe they will be referred to the Head Teacher.

If students think they will be tempted to use their phone in a Phone NO lesson, they can choose to put it in the phone safe on their teacher's desk.
