Mobile Phones

We recognise that some parents may request that their child brings a mobile phone, or similar device, to school for before and after school, for safety/security reasons. However, in order for these not to distract or disrupt our core business of teaching and learning, the school only allows mobile phones to be in school within set parameters:

  • In general, children should not bring valuable items to school, as they can easily be lost or taken.
  • Children must be responsible for any mobile phone whilst at school. Mobile phones, or similar devices, are brought to school entirely at the owner's risk and the school accepts no responsibility for replacing lost, stolen or damaged mobile phones.
  • There are no reasons why a child needs to have in their possession or use a mobile phone during the school day. Phones must remain in bags during the school day.
In cases of emergency the school office remains a vital and appropriate point of contact.
