Mobile phone and music players

Students are discouraged from bringing any mobile phones, music players or other electrical equipment to school. The school recognises that some parents, for reasons of safety, may wish their daughter or son to bring a phone to school. Any device remains the responsibility of the student and the school cannot be held liable for any loss, breakage or theft.

If students and parents chose to bring any such device to school the following expectations will be enforced.

All mobile phones, music players or other electrical equipment must be kept switched off and out of sight at all times on the school premises. Any use of phones is prohibited – this includes making or receiving calls / text messages / photographs / videos; listening to music; using as a calculator / conversion software; and checking the time.

In case of emergency, or where there is a particular need, students should ask a senior member of staff for permission to use the phone in an office.

The use of personal musical devices anywhere on the school site is not permitted.

If a student is seen using a device at school it will be confiscated. Multiple offences will result in an after school detention and parents will be asked to come to school to collect the device from school.
