Mobile Phones

In keeping with the latest government advice,  we are continuing our policy of not allowing children to bring mobile phones to school and parents are advised not to give their children phones until they are older, and then to monitor their use of them very closely. This is because mobile phones do not keep children safe but put them in danger, they can be used in bullying and are  a major disruption to learning. This is also the view of UNESCO the United Nations organization for education, and this approach is being adopted in many other countries. Government guidance allows schools to confiscate mobile phones for a period time and to search children's bags and coats for them if thought necessary. As many smart watches have phone capabilities and they are extremely expensive items we do not want children to wear these to school either. If you want to check where your child is we suggest you consider an Apple AirTag instead. If your child needs to contact you or you have a message for them the office staff are happy to relay these.
